fulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. 
However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and inteli- 
gence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest con- 
sideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recom- 
mendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving 
the design, objects and principles of this Association, and hold- 
ing the same doctrines and ordinances, may be admitted into 
fellowship upon 2/3 vote of the messengers. All applications 
shall be referred to the Executive Committee for study. 
Churches desiring membership should give notice by making 
application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relations with 
any church that continually refuses to support the design, ob- 
jects and principles of the West Chowan Association. The re-

lationship may be dissolved by a 2/3 vote of the messengers 
one year after irregularities have been brough to the attention 
of the Association.

MORNING 

1. The Seventy-fifth Annual session of the West Chowan 
Baptist Association was called to order by the Moderator, 
Merrill Evans. William R. Raynor, song leader, led in the 
singing of "O Worship The King." 

2. The Devotional exercise was led by Robert Johns, Host 
Pastor. 

3. The Clerk, J. M. Long, had charge of the enrollment 
of messengers and presented the order of service which was 
adopted. 

4. The moderator appointed the Committee on Committees: 
P. T. Worrell, C. W. Kreamer, C. W. Duling, Robert Johns, 
and H. G. Thompson.

Baptist Children's Homes of N. C, Inc. Report 

Through the years the churches of West Chowan Associa- 
tion have helped to support our Baptist Children's Homes so 



24 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



they could help meet the needs of unfortunate children of our 
state. 

However, the annual report of the Children's Homes em- 
phasizes the "unmet needs." The homes were able to admit 
only one fifth of the children for whom applications was made. 
There were a total of 813 applications. Of this number only 
169 children could be admitted to some phase of the program. 

In addition, many of the other 644 children were placed 
in the care of relatives or other agencies where their needs 
are being met. 

Last year, our Baptist Children's Homes served a total of 
751 children. This was an increase of 15 over the year before. 
Conservative estimates indicates that Baptist of N. C. should 
care for about 1,000 children annually. It is therefore planned 
to gradually expand the Foster Home Program until we as a 
Denomination are caring for our proportionate share of de- 
pendent children. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Eugene E. Johns 

7. The moderator recognized new pastors present who have 
come to the Association since last Association: Charles Cran- 
ford - Sandy Run, Horton's; James Maloney - Oak Grove; 
Harold Tribble, Jr. - Woodland; Harold Heath - Connaritsa. 

8. The Association stood and sang the hymn, "Jesus Saves." 

9. The Associational Missions Program was presented by 
C. W. Duling and Henry W. Stough. 

Report of Committee On Associational 
Missions 

At our annual meeting last October 30 the following were 
named as your committee on Associational Missions: C. W. 
Duling, J. C. Ray, Robert Johns, Roland H. Pruett, Cohen 
Parker, W. P. Milne, H. W. Thompson, and Mrs. Maggie Brid- 
gers. 

Our committee had its first meeting in Winston-Salem on 
November 13, 1957 (at the time of the meeting of our State 
Convention) and conferred with Rev. Henry W. Stough who 
had been working with the Anson Association, and discussed 
the possibility of his coming to work with us in the West 
Chowan. Mr. Stough had been most highly recommended by 
our Convention leaders, and we had the feeling that his back- 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



25 



ground of training and experience and his committment and 
devotion fitted him for work among us. We expressed our- 
selves as being ready to recommend that he be invited to be- 
come our Secretary of Promotion. 

A full meeting of our Committee was called for November 
27, 1956 at Ahoskie, and we unanimously recommended to 
the Executive Committee of the association that Brother Henry 
W. Stough be called to be our Secretary of Promotion. Upon 
our recommendation the Executive Committee extended the 
call on December 11, 1956, and Brother Stough accepted, 
moved to the field and began his work among us as of Feb- 
ruary 1, 1957. 

The response of our pastors and churches to this new ad- 
venture in our associational work is most encouraging. The 
majority of our churches are back of the program with their 
prayers and financial support; only a very few of our stronger- 
churches have not as yet put Associational Missions in their 
budgets. With the fine beginning we have had and the general 
acceptance of our worker and his work, we feel that within 
the year we will be able to report 100 % participation in this 
cooperative endeavor. 

Respectfully submitted, 
C. W. Duling 

Report Of The Secretary of Promotion 

During the time that your Secretary of Promotion has 
been in the West Chowan Association, he has sought to help 
every pastor and officer of each church, and to promote the 
work of all the churches as he has had the opportunity. He 
has also sought to promote the work of North Carolina and 
Southern Baptists and to bring about a clearer understanding 
of the opportunities and privileges of co-operation nad unity. 

Since February, your Secretary has preached and taught 
in most of the 60 churches, has helped ordain deacons and a 
pastor and has consulted with church committees and assoc- 
iation committees. He has taught mission study classes and 
Vacation Bible School clinics; he has helped to organize 
Training Unions and Brotherhoods; he has conducted Vaca- 
tion Bible Schools; he has promoted the Associational Sun- 
day School, Training Union, Brotherhood and other organiza- 
tions, and he has assisted in 3 revivals in this association. Un- 
der his ministry 69 have been won to Christ, most of whom 
have joined the churches. 



26 West Chowan Baptist Association 



During these eight months, he has driven over 17,000 miles 
and sent out 5,826 copies of "THE WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST" 
in addition to innumerable cards and letters of all kinds. 
Scores of personal conferences, group meetings and commit- 
tee meetings were attended to assist the churches of the West 
Chowan and the Kingdom of God. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Henry W. Stough 

10. Miss Addie Mae Cooke, Church Librarian Representa- 
tive, brought a fine report and a challenging message. She re- 
ported the organization of a state convention of church libra- 
ries with Rowland Pruette as President. 

Report Of Church Libraries 

The church library program in our state is expanding as 
people get a vision of its invaluable ministry. Sixty new lib- 
raries were started and 16 revitalized in our state last year, 
bringing the total to approximately 700. 

In this association, 16 churches have libraries. New ones 
started during the past associational year include: Bethlehem 
and Christian Harbor. The one at Ahoskie First was revita- 
lized. 

Borrowers from church libraries find choice books of 
fiction, poetry, drama, devotional materials through which to 
stimulate their minds and enjoy their leisure, as well as en- 
rich their hearts. 

The library helps the new Christian in his spiritual life 
and the forming of good habits. It helps in the establishment 
of family altars and the regular reading of strengthening 
materials. 

The church library enriches souls, helping many to find 
Christ. It strengthens every department of the church. It 
presents an opportunity to live more spiritual lives, to have 
more power, to broaden horizons, and to keep in tune with 
God. 

Every church should have a good library. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Addie Mae Cooke

tist Book Stores of North Carolina 

11. E. A. Cline, Pastor of Mt. Carmel, gave an inspiring re- 
port on the American Bible Society.

Report On The American Bible Society 

Baptists believe in and affirm the right of the individual 
to read and interpret the Scriptures for himself. But how is 
an individual to do this if he does not have a copy of the Scrip- 
tures in his own language? The American Bible Society was 
founded for the purpose that every man on earth may possess 
the Scriptures in his own language; in the living idomatic 
language of the people. 

In 1956, Southern Baptists who number 8,467,439, contri- 
buted $120,732 to the American Bible Society. This represented 
a per capita contribution of .014 or a cent and a half per 
capita. Accordingly the course of action for Southern Baptists 
is very clear. Those churches which do not already include 
the American Bible Society in their budgets should do so at 
once; those churches who already include the American Bible 
Society in their budgets should examine their consciences to 
see if they are giving to this very worthy cause as God would 
have them give. For it is imperative that each person have 
the Bible in his own language because the Bible speaks to 
his heart as no other language can speak. 

Respectfully submitted,

AFTERNOON 

15. The afternoon session began with the hymn, "Come 
Thou Almighty King," followed by prayer by Brother Bailey 
Jones, Pastor, West End Baptist Church, Suffolk, Va. 

16. William Charles, Ahoskie, gave an interesting report 
on Christian Education. This report follows: 

Report On Christian Education 

The some 825,000 Baptists in North Carolina continue to 
demonstrate their belief in the importance of supporting Bap- 
tist colleges as training centers for preparing Baptist leader- 
ship. This interest is shown in the enrollment of 6,500 students, 
most of whom come from our Baptist homes, with approxi- 
mately 800 being trained for the ministry and other full-time 
Christian service. 

For aiding these young people in their college training 
the Baptists of North Carolina are contributing an average of 
$1.25 per person for both operating and capital outlay pur- 
poses in these colleges, for a total of $1,100,000 annually. It is 
our hope that in the near future it will be possible to increase 
this financial assistance to provide an average of $2.00 per 
member in our Baptist churches; certainly this is not too much 
to expect our people to invest in the training of our future 
leaders in the greatest denomination in the state. 

In 1957, for the first time, these colleges, through the 
Council on Christian Education, promoted Father's Day as 
Christian Education Day in all the Baptist churches of the 
state. Although the total contributions were not as much as 
hoped for, the response throughout the state was most en- 
couraging, and already plans are being made for Father's Day, 
Sunday, June 15, 1958, and we urge all our pastors and other 
friends of Christian Education to include this in their calen- 
dar of activities for the new year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William Charles 

17. Dr. Bruce Whitaker spoke on behalf of Chowan College. 
Before his message he presented Oscar Creech, who gave the 
following report: 

Report On Chowan College 

The past year has been one of transitions and unusual 
events. 

1. Dr. F. O. Mixon was laid to rest on the first day of the 



30 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



meeting of the Association one year ago. 

2. The writer of this report was called to serve as Acting 
President, which resulted in a period of six and one-half 
months. 

3. Chowan College was accredited by the Southern As- 
sociation of Colleges and Secondary Schools last December, 
an accomplishment of inestimable value to the Institution. 
Our students can now transfer to any college anywhere. 

4. Dr Bruce E. Whitaker, B. S. U. Secretary, of our State, 
was elected president to succeed Dr. Mixon. He took over the 
duties as president on May 15, 1957. Already he has won his 
way into our hearts and has made a most favorable impression 
upon the educators of our part of the country, especially Vir- 
ginia and North Carolina. 

5. Founders Day, October 11th, was one of the greatest 
days in the history of the Institution. Nearly sixty colleges 
were represented and a great crowd witnessed the occasion. 
The Inauguration of Dr. Whitaker was the main attraction. It 
can be truly said that our president has moved smoothly into 
the stream of progress that was set in motion by our former 
president and is leading on in a most excellent way. He has 
won our confidence and surely we will give him our whole- 
hearted support in prayers, time and financial backing. 

6. The enrollment of the College one year ago was 222 
and today it is 300, 78 more than last year, which is very en- 
couraging. The Scarboro house has been renovated and 21 
men occupy it and 51 are in the homes of Murfreesboro. We 
are filled up and to have more students we must have more 
room. 

7. Another outstanding event of the year was the launch- 
ing of the Enlargement Campaign to raise $750,000. We have 
two excellent men representing a fine Agency of experts 
leading us in the campaign. The Agency was employed last 
spring and the Campaign was begun on September 2nd and is 
moving on in a splendid way. The amount to be raised is a 
most challenging one. But we are a great section of North 
Carolina; we have the people and they have the money; and 
sacrificial giving on the part of all of us will do the job. We 
must go over the top to the honor and glory of God. 

A great and wonderful day is just ahead for Chowan Col- 
lege.

18. An impressive memorial service was held by Mrs. W. B. 
Forbes, Ahoskie. 

19. Report for the Baptist Homes for Aging was given by 
Mrs. Julian Porter. In the absence of J. M. Hayes, C. W. Duling 
spoke to the report. 

N. C. Baptist Homes For Aging 

This, the seventh year of operation of the Baptist Homes 
for the Aging, has been the greatest year of expansion, thanks 
to our Lord for His continued favor, and the North Carolina 
Baptists for their increased support. 

The new Administration and Residential Building was 
opened June 13. All rooms are now occupied, except four in 
the infirmary, which are reserved for residents who will need 
them. 

The new building increased facilities to 112 residents, 
counting residents at Resthaven and the Albemarle Home. It 
also added half million dollars to the value of the assets of 
the Homes for the Aging. 

Another forward step was taken in July when the General 
Board voted unanimously to accept the offer of Don G. Mat- 
thews, Sr., Hamilton, N. C, to give $50,000 and land on which 
to build a Home for the Aging in eastern Carolina. This fourth 
Home will probably add space for approximately forty ad- 
ditional residents, thus bringing the total capacity of all the 
Homes to 150 residents. 

The residents, and all connected with the Homes for the 
Aging, are deeply grateful for the support received in the past, 
and join with the Baptists of our state in thanking God for 
His favor and blessings year by year. 

The state of health of the residents has been remarkably 
good, considering their ages 65 to 97 years.

Mrs. Julian Porter 

20. Oscar Creech, Chairman of the nominating committee,

officers and standing committees shown at the front of this 
book were those nominated by the following committee: Oscar 
Creech, Robert Gardner, Randolph Phillips, Herbert Jenkins,

tution. 

22. After necessary announcements were made, the bene- 
diction was given by K. E. Bryant.

23. The second day's session was called to order by the mod- 
erator. After singing the hymn, "Holy, Holy, Holy," devotions 
were led by Harold Tribble, Jr. 

24. After the enrollment of messengers, Charles Sinclair 
brought his annual report of the Training Union and spoke 
to his report. 

Report of the West Chowan Baptist 
Associational Training Union 

I am happy to report that there are two churches report- 
ing having Training Unions this year that did not have Train- 
ing Unions last year. They are Brantley's Grove and Pleasant 
Grove. I am also happy to report that whereas last year only 
18 of our churches requested study course awards, this past 
year 20 of our churches have requested study course awards 
and 45 people representing 10 different churches of our as- 
sociation attended one of the training union leadership as- 
semblies this past summer. 

Full plans have been made for the annual "M" Night Pro- 
gram which will be held on December 2nd at the Rich Square 
Baptist Church. The Rev. John Gill of Chowan College will 
speak on Our Baptist Heritage. We are asking the churches 
to make special plans to observe vocational guidance week 
between February 16 and 21. New books in the field of voca- 
tional guidance are now available from the book-store. We are 
moving this up one month in order to have a special training 
union leadership clinic at the Woodland Baptist Church, March 
24-27. Mr. James Morgan, Secretary of the Training Union 
Department, and the approved workers in the various de- 
partments will be here to help the churches of the West Cho- 
wan Association to have better training unions. This is pri- 
marily a leadership clinic designed for the adult leaders and 
adults of our training union. However, special study courses 
will be offered for the juniors and intermediates and a nursery 
will be provided for the younger children. We trust that all 



West Chowan Baptist Association

of the churches of our association will take advantage of this 
rare opportunity to learn. 

April 6-13 has been designated as Youth Week. On Sat- 
urday night, April 12th we will observe Youth Night at Cho- 
wan College. We are very happy to report that there were 175 
young people at our last Youth Night. This was one of the 
largest attendances reported in our state. The elimination 
tournament of the junior memory work, intermediates sword 
drill, young people's better speakers' tournament, and adult 
Scripture reading will be held at the Aulander Church on 
April 14th. There were participants in all of the groups last 
year. Our participants also represented our region in the state 
contest. 

In an effort to facilitate our work and in an effort to be 
of more service, we are sub-dividing our association into 
groups, and placing a group leader in charge of six churches. 
In this way your director can keep in contact with ten indivi- 
duals whereas before he has tried to keep in contact with 60 
different churches. These group leaders will b responsible for 
the promotional work as well as to inform your director and 
his staff as to opportunities that are available to serve churches 
of the West Chowan Association.

Chamblee and Henry W. Stough. Both Robert Johns and 
Henry Stough. Both Robert Johns and Henry W. Stough 
spoke to the report. 

Brotherhood Report 

Brotherhood work in West Chowan Association was start- 
ed in 1953 when there were nine (9) chapters organized with 
a membership of 186 men. During the years of 1954 and 1955 
there were no chapters organized but the membership in- 
creased from 186 to 212. In 1956 there were four (4) chapters 
organized which made a total of thirteen (13) chapters in the 
association with a membership of 257. At the present there are 
16 Brotherhoods in our association. 

In 1954 The ROYAL AMBASSADORS were transferred 
from the sponsorship of the WOMAN'S MISSIONARY UNION 
to the BROTHERHOOD COMMISSION. However, with the 
transfer of the Royal Ambassadors from the W. M. U. to the 
Brotherhood there has been a marked decline in R. A. en^ 



34 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



rollment. In 1954 there were 42 chapters of Royal Ambassa- 
dors with an enrollment of 525 members in the West Chowan 
Association. At the present time we have only 35 chapters 
and 360 Royal Ambassadors in the association. 

Laymen in this association have been contented to go to 
church on Sunday and to pay into the church treasury with- 
out taking any active part in the work of the church. However 
the time has come when the laymen of this association must 
take a greater step along the lines of Christian Service in 
the work of the Church.

26. The report on Civic Righteousness was given by Harvey 
Coppedge. Pertinent talks on the subject were made by W. P. 
Biggerstaff, Raleigh, and moderator Evans. 

Report On Civic Righteousness 

Some of the most dangerous threats to the American way 
of life do not come from without, but from within. These evils 
are eating away the foundation upon which our way of life 
was built. Let us now think on a few of these evils that seek 
to destroy us and our government. 

A very serious problem that faces us today in America is 
that of marriage and divorce. People have lost all sense of 
.tnan's responsibility to God and to each other. These sins of 
sex, improper marriage, divorce, and lustful love are seen 
now-adays in bright colors. The foundation of our American 
way of life quivers today because of broken homes and im- 
morality. 

I suppose it can be said that "Drink" is public enemy 
number one, and causes more trouble (heartaches, tears, and 
everything else that one can think of) than any other one 
thing. If America continues in the direction that she is going 
with the drinking of liquor, wine, and beer, the "Handwriting" 
which declared doom for Babylon could do the same for 
America. 

Did you know that there was a total of 2,563,150 estimated 
major crimes in the United States in 1956? Crime was up 13.6 
per cent across the nation during 1956 compared with the pre- 
vious year, and 1956 was the first time the total went above the 
two-and-a-half million mark. Crime has increased almost four 
times as fast as population since 1950. The sad thing is that in 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



35 



the circle of major crimes, 45.8 percent of the arrests in 1956 
were youths under 18 years of age. 

Our nation must not forget the words of the Bible: "Right- 
eousness exauteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any peo- 
ple." The problem of our country is a Spiritual one and the 
only answer is Christ. What will our people do with Jesus 
who is called Christ?

28. The report on Evangelism was given by W. E. Carter, 
after which Dr. Julian Hopkins, Raleigh, spoke to the report. 

Report On Evangelism For Year 1956-57 

The report on Evangelism for the year 1956-57 is much 
brighter than the report for the preceding year. The sixty 
churches of the West Chowan Association report 416 additions 
by baptism and 288 other additions for a grand total of 704 
additions. However, because of death, transfer of membership, 
and other reasons, we report a loss of 564 members. Thus, our 
net gain is only 140 members for the association. 

An evaluation of these statistics reveals that it took forty- 
one resident and non-resident members or 29.8 resident mem- 
bers to win one person to Jesus Christ. The ratio for the South- 
ern Baptist Convention is 21 to 1. Why should the ratio be 
so much greater in our association? Is it because the unsaved 
person in this association is harder to win for Christ? Or, is it 
because we have little concern for the lost person and have 
been neglecting a God given privilege? God forbid that we 
should rest until the last person in all the world has been won 
to the Lord Jesus Christ. 

There were eight churches in the association that report- 
ed no baptisms and only three churches reporting no additions 
of any kind.

Otis J. Hagler, Raleigh, brought an inspiring message.

Report Of Missions 

What is missions? It is the missionary effort on the part 
of every Baptist to reach the unsaved for Christ, to teach, 
enlist and train the saved in giving, living and serving through 
the churches and throughout the world. 

The first thing to be mentioned is State Missions. There 
are about 4,300,000 people in the State of North Carolina. 
There are about 2,000,000 of these above the age of eight years 
and they are affiliated with a church. Of these 1,900,000 above 
the age of eight years are unchurched. If 25 per cent of the 
affiliated church members are unsaved, then 62 % per cent of 
the people of North Carolina above the age of eight years are 
lost. We can well see that North Carolina is far from being half 
Christian when over 60 per cent of the people in this great 
state are lost and need a Saviour. 

At the beginning of 1957 the Home Mission Board reported 
1,180 missionaries, an increase of 81 over the previous year. 
Professions of faith reported by the missionaries numbered 
39,458, an increase of 1,983 over the previous year. 

We as Southern Baptists are advancing in foreign miss- 
ions. The Foreign Mission Board appointed 121 missionaries in 
1956 and 49 from January to May, 1957 which brings the num- 
ber of foreign misionaries in active service to 1154. The ap- 
pointment goal for all of 1957 is 130. The Board expects to 
reach its Advance Program goal of 1750 missionaries by 1964. 
The Southern Baptist missionaries today are serving in 38 
counties. The Foreign Mission Board received $12,733,681 from 
all sources in 1956. Funds from the Lottie Moon Christmas 
Offering for the fiscal year (May 1, 1956 to May 1, 1957) 
amounted to $5,240,745.39.

AFTERNOON SESSION 

33. The afternoon session began with the hymn, "We're 
Marching to Zion," followed by prayer by Mrs. Sallie Parker. 

34. The Associational Calendar was outlined by Henry W. 
Stough, which calendar is shown elsewhere in this book. 

35. The Sunday School Report was given by William Fut- 
rell, who spoke on his report. 

Report Of Sunday School 

Once again we close our Sunday School books to the year 
of 1956-1957 and all Sunday School activities are but history 
and we open the new 1957-58 book for a greater, more profit- 
able and with hopes for a successful year. 

Five meeting were held during the year at Creech Me- 
morial, Aulander, Lasker, and Winton. The Vacation Bible 
School Clinic was held at Aulander. The attendance was very 
good at Creech Memorial and Lasker. 

Brother Henry Stough, our promotional secretary, has 
worked faithfully for the past six months in helping churches 
in their Sunday School work. 

There have been Vacation Bible Schools held in almost 
every church. Mrs. W. P. Milne has certainly done her part to 
encourage all churches to hold Bible School. 

I would like to take this opportunity to express my thanks 
and appreciation to all pastors, superintendents, and every 
one that has contributed to the success of the year. Especially 
do I want to thank Brother Stough for his cooperation and 
assistance.

Historical Report 

WEST CHOWAN ASSOCIATION, 1957 

The History of our association will in a large measure be 
determined not by the illustrous past but by the indetermi- 
nate future. What is done in the future will be determined to 
a great degree by those men and women, boys and girls, who 
have been united with Christ in baptism, and by those who 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



39 



have been newly ordained as Deacons and Ministers of the 
gospel. 

I think that it is fitting for the Association to pause in the 
midst of its deliberations to ask our God to bless and favor 
those of his children, whose names are recorded below, as well 
as those whose names are not here recorded but who have 
entered the Master's vineyard this year, some as babes in 
Christ, some as newly ordained deacons and ministers, some 
as students for the ministry and also for the new pastors in 
our Association. Therefore, I ask that the Association stand 
now for a moment of prayer for these who have come this 
year to help us in the building up and extension of Christ's 
Kingdom.

time pastor. The church has spent approximately $1,000 on 
repairing the church and received word this year that for the 
year 1955-56 it was 17th in per capata gifts to the Cooperative 
Program in our State Convention. 

Home Coming Day was held at the close of the Revival 
Services at Siloam Church in May. A new heating plant has 
been installed in the church. Two new folding doors opening 
into the sanctuary from the classrooms have been added. New 
rest rooms have been built. 

A Building Fund was started at Union Baptist Church on 
December 31, 1956. The exterior of the church, including the 
roof, was painted. Some trees on the church grounds were 
pruned. 

Woodland Baptist Church eradicated its indebtedness on 
the church December 31, 1956. Home Coming Day was observ- 
ed on June 30, 1957, at which time the note was burned and the 
building dedicated. Dinner was held on the grounds. Dr. A. F. 
Staples led the morning worship service and the Rev. L. H. 
Sutton led the service in the afternoon. A new air conditioning 
unit for the Beginner Department was purchased. The average 
attendance for the Sunday School was 140 during the year. A 
total of 236 visitors were greeted by the church. 

37. In the absence of Russell Johnson, the moderator read 
the Report on Denominational Literature. This was followed 
by an address by Cyrus Bazemore, Raleigh. 

Report On Denominational Literature 

Baptist democracy has long depended largely on inform- 
ed, enlightened people for progress. Informed people must be 
reading people. It is essential that Baptists have a medium of 
communication for religious news and discussion. 

No denomination in America has so fine a selection of 
Christian literature as Southern Baptist have today. 

In 1833 our Biblical Recorder was founded and for 124 
years it has been going into North Carolina Baptist Homes

and serving every cause dear to the hearts of Baptists. The 
Recorder informs, indoctrinates, enlists, inspires and unifies 
our Baptist forces for the Lord's work each week as it is re- 
ceived in 61,500 North Carolina Baptist homes. 

Our denominational papers are of great value to our 
Christian work. Week by week they give articles, information 
and editorials that promote all the interests of Christ's world 
program. 

All pastors, associational workers, Sunday School Officials 
and others are urged to work together to promote in every 
possible way our denominational literature as it furthers 
every cause dear to our hearts and the cause of Christian liv- 
ing. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Russell H. Johnson, Jr. 

38. Rowland Pruette gave the Report on The Baptist Hospi- 
tal after which Dr. Richard Young brought an address. 

Report on North Carolina Baptist Hospital 

1957 

Our North Carolina Baptist Hospital is dedicated to the 
service of those in need of medical care, the education of young 
people in various branches of medical service, and the bearing 
of a Christian witness throughout North Carolina and the 
world. 

Once more it has set a new record in its ministry to sick 
people. Last year it provided 123,000 days of bed care for 15,784 
patients. There were 61,000 visits to the out-patient clinics and 
60,000 visits to the private clinics. Service patients came from 
92 of the 100 counties of our State; thus we see that our Hospi- 
tal is serving both easttern and western North Carolina. The 
best in equipment is provided in our Hospital, as typified by 
the new Cobalt machine, which is so useful in the treatment 
of cancer patients. Outstanding work is being done in many 
medical and surgical fields, including plastic surgery and 
complex heart surgery. 

It appears now that our churches of the State have made 
their largest Mother's Day offering this year. We are grateful 
for this because the needs for help have been greater than 
they have ever been before. Churches of the West Chowan As- 
sociation have given a total of $4,100.52 to the Baptist Hospital 
through the Mother's Day offerings in 1957, a slight increase 
over the gifts of 1956, which amounted to $4,026.19. 



48 West Chowan Baptist Association 



May we ever remember that Christ came with salvation, 
or "health," for the whole man, and through our hospital may 
the love of Christ go forth to bless mankind. Let us share in 
this ministry by giving generously of our prayers, our love, 
and our money. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Rowland S. Pruette

West Chowan Baptist Association 



CONSTITUTION 

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan 
Baptist Association of North Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of Messengers elected by 
the churches connected with this body and all ordained minis- 
ters who are pastors of said churches, together with the officers 
of this Association, and chairmen of all standing committees. 
Each church of one hundred members and under shall be en- 
titled to two Messengers, and for each additional one hundred 
members, an additional Messenger, provided that no church 
shall have more than ten messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to in- 
spire, encourage, and enlist its membership in a spirit of 
brotherly love and co-operation, for the promotion of the en- 
tire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel 
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ might be proclaimed with 
greater power and effectiveness in our Association, our State 
and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe 
upon the sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither 
an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a court of appeal. 
It may advise the churches and recommend measures of use- 
fulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. 
However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and inteli- 
gence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest con- 
sideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recom- 
mendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving 
the design, objects and principles of this Association, and hold- 
ing the same doctrines and ordinances, may be admitted into 
fellowship upon 2/3 vote of the messengers. All applications 
shall be referred to the Executive Committee for study. 
Churches desiring membership should give notice by making 
application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relations with 
any church that continually refuses to support the design, ob- 



West Chowan Baptist Association

lationship may be dissolved by a 2/3 vote of the messengers 
one year after irregularities have been brought to the attention 
of the Association. 

RIGHTS AND DUTIES 

Article 7. Every church shall be requested to contribute a 
percentage of its gifts, or so much per resident member for de- 
fraying the expenses of the Association and for direction of the 
promotional, educational and missionary work of the Associa- 
tion. This percentage or amount shall be sent to the Associa- 
tional Treasurer monthly by each church Treasurer. 

Article 8. Every church will send to every annual session 
of the Association a Letter on the form adopted by the Assoc- 
iation with such additional information as it may deem fitting.

Report Of The Secretary Of Promotion 

During the past year, your Secretary of Promotion has 
tried to develop the Association's Work by strengthening the 
associational organizations with well-planned meetings and 



28 West Chowan Baptist Association 



helping the local churches through various activities. 

The Associational meetings included the quarterly Sun- 
day School Conferences and Group Training Schools, the Train- 
ing Union Leadership Clinic, the ''Forward Progarm of Church 
Finance" Clinic, and the Evangelistic Conference. Several 
churches have used such programs as the "Church Develop- 
ment Survey," "Mission Emphasis Weeks," "Stewardship 
Revivals" and other special efforts to strengthen the work of 
their churches. Your Secretary of Promotion assisted in many 
of these. 

During the past year he has taught 8 Sunday School Study 
Courses, 5 Training Union Study Courses, 9 Mission Study 
Courses; has shown many films and nlmstrips, helped to or- 
ganize Brotherhoods and Training Unions, conducted 2 revi- 
vals, helped to ordain one pastor, and helped 6 churches to 
ordain thir deacons. He has preached over 70 sermons, visit- 
ed many other churches and heard others preach, conducted 
prayer meetings and supplied where there was no pastor. 

He has helped in "Schools of Missions" in other associa- 
tions, and has attended conferences at Ridgecrest and else- 
where to learn the latest methods and plans of our denomina- 
tion. During the year he has mailed over 10,290 copies of THE 
WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST, and innumerable cards, letters 
and pieces of printed matter, and has driven over 19,347 miles 
to do this work for you and the glory of God. 

Your Secretary of Promotion can only help your church 
as you will invite him in and ask him to do so. He is anxious 
to see every church grow and prosper in the Lord's work, and 
asks for the privilege to help! 

Respectfully submitted, 

Henry W. Stough 

11. Dr. Douglas Branch of Rocky Mount was recognized to 
speak on the work of the "Committee of Twenty Five." Dr 
Branch stated that the work of this committee bids to be one 
of the most significant and important things that the Baptists 
of North Carolina have done. He said that the committee had 
been instructed to study the entire program of the Convention, 
the present and future institutional needs of North Carolina 
Baptists and Church — State relations. Dr. Branch stated that 
the committee would make a completed report on Church - 
State relations at the next Convention and they would ask the 
Convention to call a special session of the Convention the first 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



29 



week in May to act on the recommendations of the Committee 
of Twenty Five. 

12. The Moderator recognized the Rev. C. W. Duling to re- 
port on the proposed Baptist Home at Hamilton. Mr. Duling 
read the report and moved its adoption. 

Report of The Proposed Baptist Home 
At Hamilton 

The proposed additional unit of our North Carolina Bap- 
tist Homes, Inc., at Hamilton N. C. originated with an offer 
of $50,000 and 14 or more acres of land by Mr. Don G. Matthews 
of Hamilton, N. C. This offer to our State Convention was re- 
ferred to the General Board of the Convention, which agreed 
to accept the gift and operate such a home on condition that 
interested people, apart from any campaign through the 
churches, would raise an additional $100,000 to build and equip 
such a home, and then the Convention would operate the home 
as the homes at Albemarle and Winston-Salem are operated 
as a part of our Convention program. 

After a few years and several meetings of interested people 
a committee of fifteen people from the four associational areas 
— North and South Roanoke, Chowan and West Chowan — was 
formed for the purpose of promoting the raising of the $100,000. 

The Rev. J. B. Dailey was given partial leave of absence 
by his churches to act as Director of the campaign. All four 
of the associations named have approved of the idea of the 
home at Hamilton, and have commended it to the prayerful 
support of the people. 

There are committees in all four of the associations charg- 
ed with the responsibility of promoting the campaign for 
funds in their respective areas. The committee in our assoc- 
iation is composed of Mrs. W. E. White, Colerain, W. R. Law- 
rence, Merry Hill, T. N. Peele, Lewiston, C. G. Maddrey, 
Ahoskie, W. R. Futrell, Rich Square, and C. W. Duling, Wind- 
sor. The response to the idea of the home in Hamilton has been 
unamimously favorable. People approve of the Home, see it 
as a fine means of rendering a distinct Christian service to 
elderly people. 

We propose to continue the efforts in fund raising until the 



30 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Home is a reality, and solicit your good will, your prayers, and 
your contributions. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles W. Duling 

Following the report by Mr. Duling, J. B. Dailey called the 
Association's attention to the architect's drawings of the pro- 
posed home. Mr. Oscar Creech stated that Chowan College was 
interested in seeing the Home at Hamilton succeed and that 
this drive would not hurt Chowan's financial campaign. 

13. The Moderator then recognized the following new pas- 
tors in the Association: C. B. Edgerton, J. G. Dissel, J. L. W. 
Moose, R. O. Brown, J. L. King. 

14. Eugene Johns, Chairman of the Committee on Commit- 
tees, was recognized. He gave the report and moved its adop- 
tion. The Moderator called for any discussion and for further 
nominations from the floor. There were none. 

The report from the Committee on Committees may be 
found on page six. 

15. The Moderator requested that visitors without the As- 
sociation stand and be recognized. Mr. Norman Blythe of 
Greensboro stood. 

16. The Clerk moved that "the Moderator of the West Cho- 
wan Baptist Association appoint some individual or commit- 
tee to see that the minutes of the preceeding sessions be suit- 
ably bound, in order to better preserve said minutes from fur- 
ther deterioration and that the cost of the binding be borne by 
the Association (unless some individual or group wishes to 
bear such expense) and that the Executive Committee select 
some suitable place within the bounds of the Association for 
the storage of these volumes which will both protect them 
and yet allow them to be used by such persons as may be in- 
terested in their contents." 

The question of the possibility of having a copy made of 
the minutes to further preserve them was referred to the 
Executive Committee, there being no objection. 

17. The Rev. Robert Gardner was recognized to present the 
American Bible Society Report. He presented the report, spoke 
to it, and moved its adoption.

American Bible Society Report 

The history of the American Bible Society is one of the 
most interesting, most informative, and most rewarding one 
you can read, with the exception of the Bible. 

The work of the American Bible Society may be grouped 
under four general heads: 1. The Society is constantly trans- 
lating and supporting the translation of the Scriptures. 2. Pub- 
lication of these translations is a major activity of the Society. 
The word of God in the native tongue of a person speaks to his 
heart as no other language can speak. 3. The world wide pro- 
gram of daily Bible reading is urged and promoted by the 
Society. 4. Free distribution of the Scriptures in all languages 
and dialects has always been one of the major activities of 
the American Bible Society. 

Since the organization of the Society in 1816, more than 
five hundred million volumes of the scriptures have been dis- 
tributed. More than fourteen and a half million volumes were 
distributed in 1957. 

The American Bible Society depends upon the free gifts 
of the churches and individuals to carry on its work. The So- 
ciety can't go beyond the interest manifested by our gifts and 
offerings for the work. No investment can go to a more glorious 
work approved by our Lord and Christ. Thus, let us so freely 
give to the American Bible Society, that every part of the 
world may have the word of God in the language of every per- 
son. And may every person who has the word of God say with 
the Psalmist, "Thy word have I hid in mine heart that I might 
not sin against Thee." 

Respectfully submitted, 
Robert A. Gardner 

18. The Vice Moderator recognized the Rev. Mr. C. B. Eger— 
ton, pastor of the host church. Mr. Egerton welcomed the As- 
sociation to the church and gave directions as to where lunch 
would be served. 

19. The Moderator recognized Mr. W. R. Raynor who intro- 
duced James Brisson, director of the Chowan College Choir. 
The Choir sang, J. S. Bach's ''Break Fourth O Beauteous Hea- 
venly Light, and the Negro Spiritual "Ain't That Good News" 
arranged by William Dawson. 

20. The Association was then led by Mr. Raynor in singing 
"O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing."

21. The Rev. Mr. Rowland Pruette then read Luke 10:1-7 
and lead in prayer after which the Rev. Mr. J. M. Long deliver- 
ed the annual sermon. He chose for his topic: "Our Attitude 
Toward The Ministry." 

22. The morning session was adjourned by the Rev. Mr. 
J. M. Duncan who said the benediction and asked God's bless- 
ing on the Lunch. 

AFTERNOON 

23. The afternoon session of the first day's session was call- 
ed to order by the Moderator in the auditorium of Chowan 
College, Murfreesboro. Mr. Raynor led the body in singing 
"Purer In Heart O Lord" after which the Rev. Walter Moose 
led in prayer. 

24. Mr. Orrin Harrell was recognized to give the Brother- 
hood Report. He spoke to the report, gave it, and moved its 
adoption. 

Brotherhood Report 

In 1957 sixteen Brotherhoods reported an enrollment of 
330. This year fifteen Brothernoods reported an enrollment of 
336. The First Baptist Church of Lewiston and Roberts Chapel 
Baptist Church reported new Brotherhoods. Aulander, Center 
Grove and Christian Harbor reported last year but not this 
year. 

Eight Intermediate R. A. Chapters reported an enrollment 
of 84 last year; six chapters reported an enrollment of 64 this 
year. Twenty seven Junior R. A. Chapters reported an enroll- 
ment of 279 last year; twenty eight chapters reported an en- 
rollment of 286 this year. 

At the Regional Convention held in Ahoskie in April 1958, 
252 of the 387 registered attendants were from this Associa- 
tion. Thirty seven of our sixty churches were represented. 
Delegations numbered in size from one to thirty six. All 
churches with brotherhoods were well represented, and sever- 
al churches not yet organized had ten or more men present. 
St. Johns is now in the process of organizing, and it is my 
sincere hope that there will be others before this year is out. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Orrin F. Harrell 

25. W. E. Carter spoke for a few moments on the importance 
of Evangelism in the life of the church. He then gave his re- 
port and moved its adoption.

Report On Evangelism 

Evangelism is the heart of God's work on earth. It must 
ever be in the foreground of all our endeavors in the churches 
and in the association. This is the Great Commission and to 
carry out the Great Commission is to do the work of evange- 
lism. 

In our Association last year the ratio of baptisms to mem- 
bership was 1 to 41. Total baptisms reported in our association 
in 1957 were 421. This year the churches reported 347 baptisms. 
This represents a loss of 74 baptisms under 1957. The ratio 
is an appalling 1 to 49 in 1958. 

The number of people won to Christ and baptised into the 
fellowship of the churches gives only a partial picture of the 
work of evangelism in the churches. The remainder of the pic- 
ture is seen in what happens to the convert after baptism. 
The program of evangelism in a church consists of winning 
people to Christ and keeping them enlisted in the total work 
of redemption. 

In 1959 we face an unparalleled opportunity to lead all 
the people in the churches to engage in the work of redemp- 
tion by cooperating in the continent-wide Simultaneous Evan- 
gelistic Crusade. This Crusade will be the biggest concerted 
effort ever made to win the North American continent to 
Christ on the part of all church members. Seven Baptist con- 
ventions in the United States and Canada are cooperating in 
this Crusade. These conventions are composed of 75,000 
churches which have 19,000,000 members. Surely every church 
in this association will want to be a part of this great effort! If 
your church has not planned to participate in this Crusade, go 
back home and plan to do so. If you can't have but one revival 
next year, then have it during the time of April 12 through 26. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. E. Carter 

26. Mrs. W. T. Timberlake read her report on Church Music, 
moved that it be accepted, and then added a few bits of per- 
tinent information. 

Report On Church Music 

It is with pleasure that I bring to you the first report from 
the Music Department of our Association. The State Depart- 
ment of Church Music, only two years old, has moved with 
great speed under the leadership of Mr. Joseph Stroud and 



34 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



we feel that our program, thus far, has helped many of us to 
see the need for a Ministry of Music. 

The past year's report shows that there are 15 organs in 
the Association, 64 pianos, 45 song leaders, 59 pianists. (Other 
information will be found in the Statistical Tables.) 

The Music Department has a total enrollment of 634 com- 
pared to a church enrollment of 17,128. In giving these figures 
I feel that you can readily see how the Music Program might 
grow through the organized efforts of the Music Committee. 
The first meeting of this committee was held in Woodland 
October 13 under the direction of Mr. Don Hinshaw of Wilson. 
The first Associational Hymn Sing was held at the Green 
Cross Church, October 19th, with five Choirs participating in 
the program. Attendance was good, congregational singing was 
especially good and many felt that it was a heart warming ex- 
perience. 

I call to your attention the Music Conferences which will 
be held Feb. 16th, in the Potecasi Church, Feb. 17th, in the 
Murfreesboro Church, and Feb. 19th, in the Powellsville 
Church. A State worker will direct each of these conferences. 
In October, 19th - 23rd, a School of Music will be conducted in 
the Aulander Church. I earnestly urge you to attend these 
meetings and to pray that we may serve our Lord with praise 
and thanksgiving through the Ministry of Music. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. William Timberlake 

27. Mr. W. M. Futrell gave the Sunday School Report and 
moved its adoption. 

Sunday School Report 

On September 30, 1958 the Associational year for the 
Sunday School closed and now all this work is history. The 
new year has begun and new plans are made for a greater 
year. 

During the year three Associational group meetings have 
been held; two at Rich Square and one at Meherrin. The an- 
nual day meeting was held at Ross. In January five Sunday 
School clinics were held simultaneously at Cashie, Jackson, 
Mars Hill, Murfreesboro, and St. Johns. A total of 535 study 
course awards were given during the year. On April 8, 1958 
our Vacation Bible School clinic met at Ahoskie. Fifty six 
churches have reported having held a Bible School during 
the vacation months. 



West Chowan Baptist Association

Most of the plans of the year were made by Mr. Stough 
and the work was done by the Christian people of the Associa- 
tion. May all the credit and honor be given to Jesus Christ 
"who giveth the increase." 

I would not close this report without giving thanks to each 
church, each officer, and everyone who has helped in any way 
during the year. It has been a great pleasure to work with 
you not only this year but for the past ten years as your sup- 
erintendent. 

To the new superintendent, and officers, I wish to bid you 
Godspeed. I stand ready to help you at any time that I can. 
Again I thank you every one for your help and interest. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William M. Futrell 

28. Charles Sinclair gave the Training Union Report and 
moved its adoption. 

Training Union Report 

There is a great deal to be desired in the Training Union 
work in our association. In October, 1957, 33 churches report- 
ed having Training Unions with a total enrollment of 2,148. 
As of October, 1958, 30 churches reported unions with a total 
enrollment of 1995. Training Union awards were received by 
445 people from 27 churches. 

During the year your Associational Training Union spon- 
sored the following: "M" Night, December 2, 1957, Rev. John 
Gill, speaker, 281 attended; the Associational Tournament was 
held at Aulander on March 14th; a leadership clinic was held 
at Woodland, March 24-27, state approved workers led con- 
ferences for all groups, average attendance was 128; Youth 
Night was held in April at Ahoskie; on October 3rd a Church 
Officers and Committees Clinic was held, seventy five people 
were present and the program was well received. 

For the coming year your Training Union is planning a 
full schedule. "M" Night will be at Ahoskie on Dec. 1st. The 
Rev. James Potter of Raleigh will be the inspirational speaker. 
The Associational Training Union will sponsor six study 
courses on Soul Winning during March. Two of these study 
courses will be held in each of the three counties. Youth Night 
will be observed on April 11th. Another Church Officers and 
Committees Clinic will be held next fall.

On behalf of all your Training Union officers, may I say 
that it is a pleasure to serve you. We covet your continued 
prayers. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles Sinclair 

29. The Moderator recognized Mr. E. C. Upchurch and wel- 
comed him back to the Association. Mr. Upchurch then spoke 
about the Church Development Program. He said that the 
Church Community Survey was a means of diagnosing the 
church and its program and was used to determine the needs 
of the individual church. He stated that present and past re- 
cords were examined in order to determine what the church 
has done in the past. He made the observation that no church 
moves any faster than the membership wants it to move. He 
spoke further about some of the means and methods used in 
the Community Survey and illustrated his remarks with the 
work that had been done at Brantley's Grove and Galatia. 

30. Mr. Raynor led the body in singing "The Church's One 
Foundation." 

31. The Moderator called on the Chairman of the Nominat- 
ing Committee to make his report. Rowland Pruette, Chair- 
man, presented and moved its adoption (this report is incor- 
porated in the Minutes on pages 3-5.) The Moderator called 
for further nominations from the floor. There were none. 

32. It was announced that the Association would meet at 
Powellsville at 10:00 A. M. the following day. 

Mr. Oscar Creech stated that Chowan College was endea- 
vouring to get a complete file of the catalogues of the college 
and would be very happy to receive any back copies that any- 
one might have. 

33. Mr. H. C. Vaughan was recognized to give the Trasurer's 
Report. He made the report and moved its adoption. It was 
stated that a new basis of reporting was being used this year, 
namely, from October 1st to September 30th, instead of from 
Associational Meeting to Associational Meeting as in the past.

34. The Moderator recognized Mr. Rowland Pruette, Chair- 
man of the Finance Committee, to present the budget for 
1958-1959. He said, "In order to meet this budget and do the 
kind of work worthy of the Name of Christ in our Association, 
75c per resident member from all of the churches will be need- 
ed. On the basis of last year's resident membership of 12,415^ 
at the rate of 75c per member we would receive a total of 
$9,116. The Executive Committee of the Association unanimous- 
ly recommends to the churches the accepting of 75c per resi- 
dent member as the goal for the churches, and the adopting of 
the budget as listed below." He then moved the adoption of 
the report.

The Moderator called for discussion on the motion. There 
was none at the time and there was a call for the Previous 
Question. The Moderator asked that the Question be held for 
a moment. He stated that moderators in the past had been 
accused of railroading a motion through and that he wanted 
to give everyone the opportunity to speak. There was still no

39 



discussion. The Previous Question was called for again. The 
motion was put and lost. The motion was made that ten 
minutes be added to the time. After this there was some dis- 
cussion. The Previous Question was called for again and a 
standing vote was taken. Ninety messengers voted for the pro- 
posed budget, nine were opposed. 

35. The Chairman of the Finance Committee moved that 
the Associational Minutes be distributed to the churches ac- 
cording to this plan, namely, that every church would re- 
ceive ten minutes regardless of their size and that two ad- 
ditional minutes be sent for each additional one hundred 
members. The motion was adopted. 

36. The Moderator asked if there was any further business. 
There was none. The motion to adjourn was received and the 
Moderator asked the body to stand and the session was ad- 
journed with the benediction by the Rev. Mr. Oscar Creech. 

The Second Day's Proceedings 

37. The second day's proceedings of the Seventy-sixth An- 
nual Session of the West Chowan Baptist Association was 
called to order October 29th at 10:00 A. M. in the sanctuary 
of the Powellsville Baptist Church. The moderator asked the 
body to stand and sing "Leaning On The Everlasting Arms." 

38. The Rev. R. Lee King of Rich Square read Ezekiel 
37: 1-10. He stated that if we are to be an exceeding great army 
we must be filled with the spirit of God and walk together 
step by step until, we become an exceeding great army. He 
then led in prayer. 

39. The Clerk moved the enrollment of the messengers. 

40. The Moderator then recognized Judge W. Dare Boone 
to bring the report on Civic Righteousness. 

Report On Civic Righteousness 

Judge Boone said that Civic Righteousness is a broad sub- 
ject that he wanted to speak on basic righteousness itself. He 
said, "the Book on this stand is a blueprint of all righteous- 
ness." He continued, saying that Solomon had said, "There 
is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof 
are the ways of death." Prov. 14: 12. "What is the way of Man?", 
he asked. He indicated that clamor for power, or greed for 
power, was one of the ways of man, and that power may be of 



40 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



many kinds — political and social. "When power is obtained 
that power can be a potent thing and a dangerous thing. I am 
afraid that one of the problems of today is the misuse of pow- 
er," he said. "There is this thing about power," he said, "when 
it is first given to us, we exercise it at first with cautiousness; 
when it is exercised for a considerable period of time people 
become careless and indifferent in its use." 

"What now," he asked, "is the obligation of the Christian 
of today in so far as his political functions go?" "Too many 
of us are indifferent. We leave it to other folk. Christian peo- 
ple have a tremendous obligation, a function we do not exer- 
cise," he said. 

"One of the minor prophets has said, "He has showed thee, 
O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, 
but to do justly, and to love mercy and to walk humbly with 
thy God." Micah 6:8. That is the embodiment of all civic 
righteousness," said Judge Boone, "to do justly." "The foun- 
tain head of all mercy springs from God himself and the New 
Testament, itself, teaches us to walk humbly with thy God," 
he concluded. 

41. Mr. H. W. Stough presented the Associational Calendar 
for 1960 and moved its adoption. 

42. The Moderator recognized Dr. and Mrs. W. C. Reed. Mr. 
J. M. Hayes, Superintendent of the Baptist homes for the Ag- 
ing of N. C. made a few pertinent remarks about the Baptist 
Homes and the proposed home at Hamilton. Mr. Hayes then 
introduced Mr. Don G. Matthews who made a few brief re- 
marks. 

43. The Rev. L. E. Dailey moved that "we as individuals ex- 
press our thanks and appreciation to Mr. D. G. Matthews for 
his gift and efforts in behalf of the aging people of North Caro- 
lina." 

44. The Rev. Charles N. Cranford was recognized to pre- 
sent the Historian's Report. He read the report and moved its 
adoption. 

Historian's Report 

There has been much improvement and advancement for 
the year 1957-58. This report lists some of the visible improve- 
ments within the churches. The true significance of this work 
under the leadership of the Holy Spirit will be shown and 
felt throughout the coming years. May the Lord continue to

Baptist Hospital Report 

Our Baptist Hospital provides a well-rounded program of 
medical care and training under Christian guidance and in- 
fluence. It serves our people when they are sick and need 
specialized medical care which requires facilities beyond those 
available in their own communities. Last year the Hospital 
provided bed care for 16,000 patients. 

Service patients came from 92 of the 100 counties of the 
State. The services of the medical staff were given free to all 
service patients, and the Hospital spent more than a half 
million dollars in providing free care for them beyond what 
they were able to pay. A service patient pays what he can of 
the cost of this care. To help make up the difference between 
what he can pay and the cost, the Hospital depends primarily 
upon the Mother's Day offerings. This fund can be used only 
in cases of real need and after the patient's family has paid all 
it can and all other possible help has been secured. 

Two factors are forcing the Hospital to seek a largely 
increased Mother's Day support if it is to continue such a ser- 
vice to our sick: First, hospital costs everywhere have increas- 
ed more than 30 % in the last five years; Second, as the number 
of North Carolina Baptists increases, the demand for this ser- 
vice increases. 

Fortunately there has been an increase in the amount of 
Mother's Day offerings, also. These contributions have grown 
by 20 % in the last five years. Yet, it is clear that only through 
greatly increased support by our churches can the Hospital 
hope to continue to give the large volume of free service it 
has been giving to our people. We believe Baptists of North 
Carolina will provide the necessary funds if they realize the 
need. Our need, therefore, is simply for our churches to in- 
form their people of the need more effectively. We shall be 
happy to assist you in your efforts. 

Dr. Huggins then introduced Dr. W. C. Reed who spoke 
about the work of the Children's Homes. 

Baptist Children's Homes Report 

June 30, 1958 marked the culmination of 15 years of pro- 
gressive leadership by W. C. Reed with the Baptist Children's 
Homes. Under his supervision the Children's Homes experienc- 
ed one of their greatest periods of building growth, and ex- 
pansion of services. At present North Carolina Baptists pro- 



West Chowan Baptist Association 45 



bably provide more services for dependent children than any 
other similar group in America. Dr. W. R. Wagoner, of North 
Wilkesboro, was elected by the trustees to succeed Mr. Reed. 
Dr. Wagoner assumed his duties July 1. 

Since Oct. 1, 1957 N. C. Baptists have directly served a 
grand total of 753 children. In addition to these, our social 
workers have been able to place with relatives or other agen- 
cies more than 200 children where their needs are now being 
met. During the past year we were able to admit about one- 
fourth of the applicants as compared with about one-fifth 
admitted in 1956. 

Last year's report pointed up the need for expanding our 
Foster Homes and for the care of the Indian children at Pem- 
broke. The Baptist State Convention voted to accept the re- 
commendation of the Board of Trustees to make the Odum 
Home at Pembroke a part of the North Carolina Baptist Child 
Care Program. This work, with 16 children, has been under 
the care and support of your Homes since January 1958. 

(The Biblical Recorder had no representative present at 
the associational meeting. The following report is included 
for it's information.) 

Report On Denominational Literature 

The contacts, impressions and surroundings of a person 
largely make up his mind, habits and actions. Even a worm 
takes on the color of the plant or leaf on which it feeds. Hu- 
man beings take on the color and nature of what they read. 
Never before has there been so much to read. Publishers have 
dressed up their wares in rainbow colors, and used every style, 
trick and art of printing to make their publications look tempt- 
ing to the eyes of young and old. Much of this popular litera- 
ture is bad. It pours like a stream of poison from the presses of 
profit-hungry publishers. It loads down the news stands, and 
clogs the mail-boxes of all who will buy and receive it. Much 
of this unclean reading matter gets into Baptist homes. This 
should never be, for no other denomination has so wide a 
variety of good Christian literature as Baptists have, to meet 
the spiritual interests and needs of every member of the fami- 

iy- 

When North Carolina Baptists organized themselves in 
1830, Thomas Meredith, appointed by the body to send out 
a letter stating its purpose, said: "The Convention was organiz- 
ed for the purpose primarily, of giving the Gospel to North 



46 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Carolina, and then to all the world." The Constitution of the 
Convention soon afterward stated that its main purpose was 
"The promotion of misions, Christian education, social ser- 
vice, and the distribution of sound Christian literature." The 
BIBLICAL RECORDER was founded in 1833, to help carry 
out these noble aims. For 125 years, it has borne the Baptist 
message in North Carolina. By careful planning, and with the 
fine cooperation of pastors and their people over the State, 
we have had a good year in general, with circulation approxi- 
mately 61,000 and growing. 

Dr. Huggins then began to speak about the world pro- 
gram. He stated that the key word to the understanding of our 
generation is the word cooperation. 

Dr. Huggins then asked 25 people to come up to the front 
to represent an organization or institution of the denomina- 
tion. He said, "I don't know how to get 110c out of 100c, do 
you?" He then pointed out that we could only use what we had. 
After that he dramatized the fact that each institution receiv- 
ed so many cents out of the Cooperative Program Dollar. 
These amounts were as follows: Campbell College - 4.5c, Bibli- 
cal Recorder - 1.5c, Gardner ¥/ebb College - 4c, Baptist Hospi- 
tal - 4.5c, Wingate College - 4c, Wake Forest 8.5c, Mars Hill 
5c, Children's Homes - 7c, Chowan College - 3c, Home for the 
Aging - 1.5c, Meredith - 6c, State Missions - 11c and the Bap- 
tist Building 1c. He continued in the same vein with the 
Southern Baptist Convention Agencies. In addition to these 
amounts each agency received certain designated amounts. 

These designated amounts come to the institutions from 
the special offerings taken by the churches for that particular 
agency. No deduction of any kind is taken from them. Dr. 
Huggins said, "A special offering ought to be a special offering! 
The quickest way to kill a special offering is to put it in the 
budget." He also said that there was a danger of killing the 
Cooperative Program by putting Special Offerings in the 
church budget, because the offering was not taken so the 
effect was that the churches gave that much less to the Co- 
operative Program. 

He then asked the Association to take a look at its pre- 
vious record which showed that the average amount given 
through the Cooperative Program per church was nine cents 
(.09) . out of each dollar that we receive. He suggested that we 
could do better than that. He said that the average Baptist 
gave about twenty two cents (.22c) per week for the total 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



47 



world program (this includes the Cooperative Program gifts 
and Designated gifts) . 

He concluded by saying, "Understanding all this doesn't 
mean you're going to give more. It's not what you've got, but 
what's got you." 

47. The Rev. D. M. Spell, host pastor, was recognized to 
make some announcements. The Vice Moderator was then ask- 
ed to dismiss us and to ask the blessing. He did so and the 
meeting adjourned for lunch. 

AFTERNOON 

48. The Moderator began the afternoon session by asking 
Mr. Raynor to lead the body in singing "O Zion Haste." The 
body was asked to remain standing as the Rev. P. T. Worrell 
led in prayer. 

49. Dr. M. A. Huggins was recognized to speak on the sub- 
ject of State Missions. 

He began by stating that he was suffering from a tooth- 
ache and had been taking some acromycin for the infection. 
He then said that some of you men need to get stewardship 
in your system to drive out the poison of selfishness. He con- 
tinued by talking about State Missions from the historical 
point of view. 

Up until 1919-1924, Dr. Huggins said, State Missions had 
to go to the churches directly for its support. He observed 
that you can't support a world program on a once a year offer- 
ing. He related that this year we are only about 5% ahead of 
last year in contributions. State missions gets ll r A of the Co- 
operative Program Dollar plus about $140,000 in designated 
funds, and really needs about 15$ of the Cooperative Pro- 
gram dollar he said. 

State Missions combines about twenty different activities 
which can be divided in terms of three different categories, 
said Dr. Huggins. These categories were: 1., General Missions 
— This includes the Department of Evangelism which helps to 
get mission churches started and the Department of Church 
Planning or church architecture. 2., The Popular Education 
Program — This work is composed of seven departments, some 
of which are: Sunday School, Training Union, B. S. U., Brother- 
hood and Visual Aids. These are designed to meet the need 
of the thousands who will never see the inside of a college. 
3., Ministry to Other Groups — Inter Racial Cooperation, Si- 



48 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



lent People, P. O. A. U. for the Separation of Church and State, 
and Pastoral Care. Dr. Huggins concluded by saying that State 
Missions is the oldest part of the work that we have now. 

50. Dr Bruce Whitaker of Chowan College was recognized 
to speak about the College and Christian Education. 

Dr. Whitaker began by saying that the college was now 
receiving more money through the Cooperative Program than 
we have ever known from any other single source. Dr. Whita- 
ker continued by talking about Christian Education itself. He 
said that without the colleges we could have no real world 
program. He stated that one out of four people in the United 
States is enrolled in some type of educational program. Dr. 
Whitaker said that we must undergird our world program 
with an educational program, and that our institutions are 
growing in the quantity and quality of their work. 

Speaking of Chowan Dr. Whitaker mentioned that the 
New Dormitory for Women was dedicated on Oct. 25th. He 
said that the College hoped to have a new cafeteria by next 
year and that they were depending on the people to support 
the Development Program with their gifts. 

Last years enrollment was 299 and 420 have enrolled this 
year, said Dr. Whitaker. He said that the College needed faci- 
lities to take care of the students who were coming to the 
school and that it needed endowments through wills and be- 
quests of the people. 

In concluding Dr. Whitaker said that the students at Cho- 
wan pay about 60 % of the cost of their education while State 
students pay only about 20 r ^ . If we did not receive the special 
offerings we would have to close said Dr. Whitaker. W T e are de- 
pendent on what you give us he said in closing, and asked 
that we see that the College get the support it ought to have. 

51. Mrs. Harry Underwood then conducted the Memorial 
Service. She asked that the body stand for a moment. Then 
she read the roll of this years "Beloved Dead." Mrs. D. M. 
Spell played a portion of Dvorak's "New World Symphony" 
while Mrs. Underwood made her well chosen remarks. She 
concluded the service with prayer. 

52. The body then stood and sang "To God Be The Glory." 

53. The Moderator recognized K. E. Bryant who brought 
the Place and Preacher Report. He said that the next Session 
would be held on Oct. 27th at the First Baptist Church in 
Lewiston and on Oct. 28th at Bethany. The preacher would

49 



be the Rev. Rowland Pruettte with the Rev. H. G. Thompson 
serving as alternate. He moved its adoption. 

54. The Moderator recognized the Rev. C. W. Duling who 
brought the Report from the Resolutions Committee. He read 
it and moved its adoption. 

Resolutions 

Whereas God has blessed us according to His usual grace 
and mercy far beyond our deserving in bringing us through 
the 76th year of our organizational life as an Association, and 
whereas our associational officers and workers have been faith- 
ful in their stewardship and have given us leadership and 
guidance in a progressive program of service and work for 
the Kingdom of God in our local churches, our denominational 
institutions and our mission program at home and around the 
world; and whereas the Meherrin and Powellsville churches 
and Chowan College have provided meeting places and enter- 
tainment for our 76th session: 

Be it resolved: 

1. That we penitently and humbly express our gratitude 
to God for His mercy and blessings, our thanks to our officers 
and leaders for their faithful service and Christian example, 
our appreciation to our moderator for his skillful and effi- 
cient presiding over our meetings, our sincere gratitude to 
Meherrin and Powellsville churches for the privilege of meet- 
ing with them and sharing their hospitality, fellowship and 
food. 

2. That we express our confidence in and our appreciation 
for the splendid leadership and faithful work of our Director 
of Promotion, Henry W. Stough, as he has led in consecrated 
living and more effective programs of work. 

3. That we, in view of the widespread lack of attention 
to moral living as evidenced in increased crimes of all kinds — 
homicides, delinquency, juvenile and adult, broken homes, 
alcoholism, bank robberies, school house and synagogue bomb- 
ings — express our concern over these things by affirming our 
belief in law and order, our hatred of violence and anarchy, 
and our respect for constituted authority; and that we dedi- 
cate ourselves to full commitment to God's will in Christ 



50

and call on all people for similar commitment to the Gospel 
of Christian love and good will. 

Respectfully submitted,

55. A supplementary report was heard from the Nominat- 
ing Committee. (The report is included in the original report) . 
Rowland Pruette, Chairman, moved its adoption. 

56. The Moderator asked the Vice Moderator to take the 
chair. The Moderator then gave the report from the Execu- 
tive Committee and moved it's adoption. 

Report From The Executive Committee 

The Executive Committee of the West Chowan Baptist 
Association during the year 1957-58 has been concerned pri- 
marily with matters pertaining to the support of the associa- 
tional budget. To facilitate these matters a Finance Commit- 
tee was appointed by the Executive Committee whose mem- 
bers were: H. C. Vaughan, treas., Mrs. Julian Porter, Rev. 
Eugene Johns and Rev. Rowland Pruette, Chm. They have 
served diligently and well. This committee contacted some of 
the churches which had not been supporting the associational 
budget and persuaded them to assist the other churches in this 
matter. Pastors and other officers within the local churches 
were contacted on various occasions by letter to let them 
know of the financial needs and plans of the association. This 
committee studied various plans which would enable the as- 
sociation to support the budget which had been adopted by the 
association at the last annual session. It was manifest that the 
rate of assessment of sixty cents per resident member did not 
suffice. The Executive Committee adopted the recommenda- 
tion of increasing the assessment per resident member to 
seventy- five cents. 

There were insufficient funds in the associational treasury 
in the months of May and September to meet its contracted 
obligations for those months; therefore, after due considera- 
tion, the Executive Committee authorized the Finance Com- 
mittee to borrow in the name of the Executive Committee of 
the West Chowan Baptist Association $400 to meet said obli- 
gations. Due to the fine work of the committee and the in- 
creased support of the churches, no further monies had to be 
borrowed. 

The Executive Committee reexamined the relationship of 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



51 



the Promotional Secretary to the association and appointed a 
Promotional Committee to assist in an advisory capacity to 
the Promotional Secretary. This committee was composed of 
the heads of the various departments. 

In light of the fact that the constitution of the association 
does not state what constitutes a quorum for the Executive 
Committee, the committee adopted a motion that "a quorum 
for the Executive Committee be constituted by at least ten 
members." 

The practice that some churches have of getting a copy 
of the Minutes for every family did not meet the approval of 
the Executive Committee which referred the matter to the 
Finance Committee for them to design a formula whereby 
the number of minutes could be assigned with some degree 
of equality to the several churches. 

A committee was selected from the Executive Committee 
to work with a committee from the Bertie Union Meeting in 
regards to an organic union between the Bertie Union and the 
West Chowan Baptist Association. 

The Executive Committee adopted the resolution that the 
West Chowan Baptist Association participate in the Simul- 
taneous Evangelistic Crusade in 1959. 

During the year three members of the Executive Com- 
mittee resigned. They were Merrill Evans, Brotherhood, C. W. 
Kreamer and J. M. Long. Their positions were filled respec- 
tively by Orrin Harrell, Russell Johnson and Dr. Alton Parker. 

These are some of the matters that plagued the Executive 
Committee during the year 1957-58, and constituted its work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. Gordon Maddrey, Moderator. 

57. The Moderator asked if any one wanted to say anything. 
The clerk thanked the churches for their cooperation in send- 
ing in their church letters. The Moderator expressed his ap- 
preciation and thanks. 

The Seventy-sixth Annual Session was then adjourned 
with prayer by the Rev. J. C. Ray.

How the West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized November 9, 1769, (according to 
Paschall). Sandy Run (then called Bertie) was the only West Chowan church in 
the organization. 

2. In 1806, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke River. North of the 
River in North Carolina became the Chowan Association. The following West 
Chowan churches were in the new organization : Ahoskie, Sandy Run. Bethlehem. 
Cashie, Meherrin. Ross (then called Ross' Meeting House), Colerain (then 
called Wiccacon). 

3. In 1883 the Chowan Association divided at the Chowan River and the three 
counties between the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers became the West Chowan 
Association. Twenty -eight churches formed the Association. 



The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in America. The 
Philadelphia formed in 1T07 was first; the Charleston (S. C.) in 1751; the Sandy 
Creek (around Sanford) in 1758; nnd the Kehukee in 1769.

Each church of one hundred members and under shall be en- 
titled to two Messengers, and for each additional one hundred

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to in-

greater power and effectiveness in our Association, our State

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to infringe 
upon the sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is neither

fulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any way. 
However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and inteli- 
gence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest con- 
sideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recom- 
mendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approving 
the design, objects and principles of this Association, and hold- 
ing the same doctrines and ordinances, may be admitted into

Churches desiring membership should give notice by making 
application one year in advance. 

Article 6. The Association may dissolve its relations with 
any church that continually refuses to support the design, ob-

PROCEEDINGS 

THE FIRST DAY 

1. The Moderator, C. Gordon Maddrey, began the Seventy- 
seventh Annual Session of the West Chowan Baptist Associa- 
tion by calling the meeting to order in the sanctuary of the 
First Baptist Church, Lewiston, N. C. Herman Dilday then led 
the body in singing "O For A Thousand Tongues To Sing." 

2. The Rev. Mr. D. T. Wells read Eph. 5:15-21 for the de- 
votional and then led in prayer. 

3. The Clerk, Levi Gillikin, Jr., moved that "the messen- 
gers from the various churches, their alternates, the Officers 
of the Association, the pastors of said churches and the Chair- 
men of all Standing Committees, be enrolled and constitute 
the working body of the Association." 

4. The Vice Moderator, J. B. Dailey, presented the Order 
of Service and moved its adoption as the order of work. 

5. The Moderator appointed the Committee on Committees: 
C. W. Duling, Chmn., Cohen Parker, W. A. Thomas, K. E. 
Bryant, H. W. Tribble, Jr., and J. L. Walter Moose. 

6. The Digest of Church Letters was presented by the clerk. 

7. New pastors in the association were recognized by the 
Moderator. 

8. Dr. Bruce Whitaker was then recognized to speak on 
Christian Education and Chowan College. Dr. Whitaker then 
introduced Charles Barham, III, of Raleigh, President of the 
student body at Chowan. Mr. Barham spoke briefly about the 
college and thanked North Carolina Baptists, on behalf of the 
students, for making their college careers possible. 

Dr. Whitaker then remarked that North Carolina Baptists 
early believed in Christian Education. Wake Forest College 
was established in 1834 and Chowan in 1848. He pointed out 
that the proposed State Convention budget for next year to- 
taled $4,100,000 and of that amount $1,129,000 was allocated for 
Christian Education. Dr. Whitaker stated that Baptists be- 
lieve in, and support Christian Education. He said that Cho- 
wan received $15,000 for the Father's Day Offering and of that 
amount $9,300 came from the West Chowan Association. Cho- 
wan's share in the State Convention Budget was $99,000. The 
enrollment this year is 470 students and over 100 qualified stu- 



26 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



dents were turned away. There are 338 students living on the 
campus. 

Dr. Whitaker pointed out that there are 8,000 students in 
our Baptist Colleges and that the major decisions of life are 
made by young people. They select their wives or husbands, 
their vocations and decide what to do with God and for God 
at this age. He said, "I believe that what we are doing can not 
be surpassed by way of Kingdom Service." Dr. Whitaker con- 
cluded his remarks by inviting the body to the campus on 
Monday, November 2nd at 7:30 A. M. for the dedication of 
the new cafeteria. 

9. Charles Sinclair then led the association in singing "How 
Firm A Foundation." 

10. The Associational Promotional Secretary, H. W. Stough, 
was recognized to present his report on Associational Missions. 

Report Of The Secretary Of Promotion 

Our Associational Work continutes to get stronger each 
year as we work together in proclaiming the gospel, teach- 
ing and training our workers, enlisting our members in ser- 
vice and stewardship, and enlarging our Associational organi- 
zations. Reports and figures cannot correctly estimate and re- 
veal the increased interest and activities of our churches in 
Associational Work. 

During the past year, your Secretary of Promotion visited 
in all 60 churches of our Association. Sometimes he spoke 
(when he was invited) , but most of the times he came to wor- 
ship, to pray, or to teach when opportunities came. Of the 41 
churches where he either preached or spoke, in only 6 of them 
was he a "supply preacher;" in all of the others he was there 
to promote the Lord's work and take part in the worship ser- 
vice. During the year he also conducted 12 study courses, as- 
sisted 6 churches to ordain deacons, helped two churches to 
install officers, taught missions and showed filmstrips, counsel- 
ed in teachers and officers' meetings, conducted prayer meet- 
ings when the pastor was absent, assisted churches that had 
no pastor, and helped in many other innumerable ways. He 
conducted one revival in, and two away from the Association, 
and also helped in Sunday School and Training Union Con- 
ferences here and elsewhere. 

During the year he has mailed out 11,614 copies of "THE 
WEST CHOWAN BAPTIST" and has written hundreds of 
cards and letters, made many phone calls and personal visits, 



West Chowan Baptist Association 27 



and has driven over 22,250 miles doing this work for the Lord 
and representing you. 

Attending the State and Southern Baptist Conventions has 
enriched his understanding of our total Baptist Work. The 
Home Mission Conference at Ridgecrest and the World Mission 
Week at Caswell gave him practical help for Associational 
work. Participating in Regional Conventions of the Brother- 
hood, Training Union and Sunday School enabled him to ex- 
tend his ministry. 

Your Secretary of Promotion can only help your church 
when you invite him to come and ask him to do so. He wants 
to see every church grow and prosper in the Lord's work; and 
would like the privilege of helping. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Henry W. Stough 

He then moved the acceptance of his report. 

A group of men then spoke briefly about the different 
areas of our associational endeavor. 

11. Jack Painter, hospital representative, was recognized. 
He presented the Rev. Earl Rogers of Washington, N. C. mem- 
ber of the board of trustees of the North Carolina Baptist Hos- 
pital. 

Mr. Rogers said that the first responsibility of a hospital 
is to care for the sick. He then pointed out that the hospital in 
Winston Salem is a teaching institution as well as a healing 
institution. Mr. Rogers said that there are 500 persons in train- 
ing at the hospital, and approximately 200 graduate each year. 
He stated that the hospital is pioneering in the fields of cancer 
and kidney research. 

Mr. Rogers concluded his remarks by quoting a physician 
at the hospital who sees the need of the people daily and knows 
that we need to do more charity work in order to justify the 
hospital's existence. (The W. C. B. A.'s gifts to the Hospital 
this year is approximately $1000 less than last years.) 

12. The Moderator called on the Vice Moderator to occupy 
the chair, so that he could give the report from the Executive 
Committee. 

Report From The Executive Committee 

The primary work of the Executive Committee during the 
1958-1959 session has been in the realm of dealing with the 
harassing problem of a continuing lack of funds from January 



28 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



through August. Thanks to the providence of the Almighty 
who provides wisely out of his bounteous storehouse, the kind- 
ness of our banker friends, the increasing support of the 
churches, and the labors of our committee, we have paid our 
just debts and face the coming year with renewed confidence, 
a small balance in the bank, and the hopes of remaining in the 
black. 

In accordance with the Association's action of last year the 
minutes were bound, and microfilmed. The Executive Com- 
mittee voted for the clerk to retain in his keeping the bound 
volumes and that the microfilm be placed on loan to South- 
eastern Seminary. 

The committee adopted the policy of receiving sealed bids 
from firms interested in printing the minutes. 

A committee to investigate the status of the association's 
Standing Committees was appointed. The recommendation of 
this committeee was approved by the Executive Committee 
and presented to the Association. The committee appointed 
last year to work with the committee from the Bertie Union 
made its report to the Executive Committee October 26 and 
the Executive Committee makes a recommendation in this 
matter to the association. 

The committee recommends to the Association that it have 
an Associational Simultaneous Revival Crusade each year un- 
til 1964. 

During the course of the year the resignation of Orrin 
Harrell was received; and Harold Heath and Eugene Johns 
moved outside the bounds of the Association. 

These matters constituted the bulk of our work during the 
past associational year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. Gordon Maddrey 

For The Executive Committee 

The Chairman of the Committee on Evangelism was called 
upon to speak on the recommendations in regards to the Simul- 
taneous Revivals. 

13. The Moderator then recognized Charles W. Duling, 
Chairman, to bring the report from the Committee on Commit- 
tees, which report is incorporated in these minutes on page 6. 

14. Paul T. Worrell, Chmn, of the Nominating Committee 
was recognized to present the nominees for the association. 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



29 



The nominees were elected and the results are found on pages 
3 - 5. 

15. The Moderator appointed the Committee on Place and 
Preacher: Lonnie Sasser, Chmn., Mrs. Cecil Lowe and Oscar 
Creech, and the Committee on Resolutions: H. W. Tribble, Jr., 
Chmn., Mrs. Carlton Cherry and William Futrell. 

16. The proposed constitutional changes were read by the 
Moderator. 

17. A resolution from the Bertie Union Meeting, adopted 
by the Executive Committee the previous night was: moved, 
seconded, discussed con and pro, ammended, substituted and 
tabled until the afternoon session. 

18. The body was then led in singing "Am I A Soldier Of 
The Cross? 

19. The Moderator recognized the Rev. Rowland Pruettte 
who brought the Annual Sermon. Mr. Pruette used John 17: 
13-23 as his scripture and spoke on the subject: "The Whole 
Gospel For The Whole World." 

20. The Rev. J. B. Stephenson, pastor of the host church, 
made certain announcements concerning the lunch. 

21. The Moderator then asked Lloyd Parker to ask the bless- 
ing for lunch. 

AFTERNOON SESSION 

22. The Moderator opened the afternoon session and Charles 
Sinclair led the body in singing "When I Survey The Wond- 
rous Cross." The Rev. John Davis led in prayer. 

23. William Futrell was recognized to present the report 
for the Children's Homes. Mr. Futrell in turn presented Mr. 
W. A. Smith of the Kennedy Home who spoke briefly about 
the importance of the Thanksgiving Offering to the Homes. 

Mr. Futrell then gave his report. 

Report On The Baptist Children's Homes 

During the Associational year, I have visited our two Bap- 
tist children's homes in Thomasville and Pembroke, and I find 
that they are greatly in need of repairs and improvements. I 
certainly feel that we should do something at once at Pembroke 
even though they have only sixteen children in that home. 

For the past fifteen years I have watched our Kennedy 
Home and feel that it is one of the greatest homes on earth. It 



30 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



is a grand place to go, and I wish every member in this As- 
sociation could make at least one trip to this home. It would 
certainly enrich your Christian life and be a blessing to you. 

We are caring for about 700 children each year in the Chil- 
dren's Homes and about 200 in homes of children's relatives 
and friends. Today, since the cost of living is so great and the 
needs are greater than ever before, it should challenge each 
Baptist to go back and give at least one day's pay at Thanks- 
giving for those we have adopted. 

Respectfully submitted, 

W. M. Futrell 

24. The Moderator called on Rev. P. T. Worrell to give di- 
rections to Bethany. 

25. W. E. Carter was recognized to bring the report on Evan- 
gelism. 

Report On Evangelism 

Jesus' command to us is, "Go ye therefore, and teach all 
nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the 
Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all 
things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with 
you alway, even unto the end of the world." Thus, Jesus puts 
soul winning first in His total program with a definite com- 
mand. 

During the years 1959-1964, in the Jubilee Advance, Bap- 
tists of North America are making an effort to be obedient to 
the Great Commission by putting soul-winning in the fore- 
ground of their respective programs. In 1959 it appears that 
real progress has been made in this direction. Reports received 
in the office of Evangelism in Raleigh indicate that the Simul- 
taneous Evangelistic Crusades over the State were the most 
fruitful ever. With one exception, every association in the State 
participated. Most of them did more praying, planning, and 
working to win all the people to a full committal to Christ than 
ever before. Figures in the Raleigh office for the State show 
about 15,000 baptisms, 20,000 total additions, and that more 
than 2,000 young people surrendered their lives for full-time 
Christian vocations. 

In the West Chowan Baptist Association reports on the 
1959 Crusade reveal the following: 25 churches had revivals 
during the April 12-26 date of the Crusade, six churches had 
revivals out side the April 12-26 date but were cooperating 
with the Crusade. There were approximately 275 baptisms and 
more than 52 letters and other additions. One person made a 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



31 



surrender for full-time Christian service. 

Additions to the churches for the year in the association 
were: baptisms 490; other additions 301; total additions 791. 
This is an increase over 1958 of 143 in baptisms and 182 in total 
additions. 

The rate of baptisms to church members is 1:22 for South- 
ern Baptists and 1:25 for North Carolina Baptists. Our As- 
sociation's ratio for 1957 was 1:40. It was 1:49 in 1958, and this 
year it is 1:35. The goal of Southern Baptists in ratio of bap- 
tisms to church members is 1:8. This constitutes our greatest 
challenge. Therefore, in an effort to achieve this objective, it is 
recommended that the West Chowan Baptist Association adopt 
the following goals: 

1. To conduct an annual clinic devoting two sessions ex- 
clusively to evangelism striving to have at least seventy- 
five per cent of the churches and pastors participating. 

2. To conduct an annual Simultaneous Revival Crusade 
with at least eighty per cent of the churches participat- 
ing. 

3. To endeaver to have at least seventy-five per cent of the 
churches using the church council and sustaining peren- 
nial programs of evangelism with soul-winning in the 
forefront of the total program in every church. 

Respectfully submitted, 
William E. Carter 
Chairman of Evangelism 

The report was read and its adoption moved. The Modera- 
tor pointed out that the adoption of the report would also* 
adopt the three recommendations. 

26. Miss Edna F. Dawkins, Associate Secretary of Missionary 
Personnel of the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist 
Convention was recognized. She took as her text Joel 3: 13f. 
and then gave a heart warming message on the multitudes in 
the valley of decision. 

27. The resolution regarding the Bertie Union meeting was 
taken off the table and discussion resumed as the Moderator 
called on Charles Sinclair to give the background in regards 
to the matter. After further discussion the matter was post- 
poned until the next days session. 

28. The Moderator then recognized the Treasurer, H. C. 
Vaughan who brought his report.

After reading his report Mr. Vaughan moved its adoption. 

29. The Vice Moderator was recognized and he stated that 
the Treasurer's books had been audited and were all right. 

30. The Moderator then asked Dr. C. G. Powell to lead us in 
our dismissal prayer. After the prayer the body adjourned. 

The Second Day's Proceedings 

31. The proceedings of the Seventy-seventh Annual Session 
were continued in the sanctuary of Bethany Baptist Church on 
October 28, 1959 as the Moderator called the group to order 
and asked them to sing "Near The Cross." 

32. The devotional was given by W. B. Brookshire who read 
John 7:llf., and then spoke briefly about the scripture and 
led in prayer. 

33. The Clerk moved the enrollment of the messengers. 

34. Walter Anderson, Director of the State Bureau of In- 
vestigation, was recognized to speak on Civic Righteousness. 

Report On Civic Righteousness 

We're living in an unusual age. Some call it the space age, 
some the atomic age, I refer to it as an age of automation. It 
is designed to help people live. At first labor was afraid of 
automation. Now they find that it has given people more time 



34

to be engaged in other activities. 

We ought to be living better than we have ever before, 
but that isn't the case is it? Out of your economy you're pay- 
ing $6995 per second, every minute, every hour, every day, 
every year for crime. Twenty two million dollars was the cost 
of crime last year. The economy has swelled to 400 billions per 
year and some say we can, therefore, afford the cost of crime 
which is $60,271,235 daily or $2,511,301 hourly. You can thus 
get a picture of the cost. 

The trouble with the above is that we're living by num- 
bers and by figures. These figures fall on individuals who have 
souls. 

Protestants are doing the next best job to the Catholic in 
instilling in youth the doctrines of Christianity. In these youth 
are instilled something that is hopeful and useful that will sus- 
tain them in trials and temptations. 

With all of the denominational programs however, crime 
is still on the increase. Crime increased last year 9.3% com- 
pared with a 1.7% population increase. Youth can be moulded; 
adults are harder to change. Adult crime has increased at the 
rate of 1% per year, but crime by youth has increased 10% 
per year for the last seven or eight years, so the problem is 
with our youth. 

There is one encouraging sign. There were fewer young 
people envolved in gambling and in auto-thefts, crimes that 
have the "nobody is going to catch me" attitude behind them. 
These were down 9.7% and 7.4% over last year. 

Youth under eighteen years of age committ: 49.1% of all 
the burglaries, 48.9% of all major larcenaries, 22% of all wea- 
pons uses, 18.5% of all rapes! 

What about our own state? The "all-crime" rate is 896.9 per 
100,000. In North Carolina the rate is 662.5 per 100,000. The 
murder rate for the nation is 4.7; for North Carolina it is 9.4. 
Life is cheap with us. One life was recently taken for .07c — you 
couldn't get a soft drink for that! There were 8.4 rapes per 
100,000 in the Nation and 8.4 in North Carolina. The aggravat- 
ed assault rate is 65.5 nationally, 188.5 in the state, burglaries 
are 3000 nationally and 2605 in the state, thefts are 166.4 na- 
tionally and 72.7 in North Carolina. 

I have said this to speak about a problem that confronts 
the church, and you and me. I speak about the problem of al- 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



35 



cohol. There is no accurate calculation on this. Alcohol enters 
the picture in somewhere between 70 and 75% of the cases of 
crime. 

Blueprints are going to be presented to the electorate for 
the solution of this problem. This is partly inspired by poli- 
tics. It is not too much to say that alcohol is engulfed in the 
economy of this state. 

In the state there are 164 liquor stores. They sold $67,131,- 
331.40 worth of liquor. Our people paid this much for a poison 
which doesn't do any one any good. There are 5,358 beer out- 
lets in the state. They did $75,831,234.90 worth of business. 
There are 2,046 wine outlets whose sales amounted to $8,829,- 
973. 70. Add it together and you get $151,792,580.00! One hun- 
dred and fifty one million dollars and yet we say we can't af- 
ford certain necessities of life. 

It would be interesting to compare how much was put in- 
to the Kingdom of God. 

These are problems we face. There is a good Baptist lay- 
man trying to enforce the laws of this state. The liquor in- 
dustry is trying to force this man to lose his job. They weren't 
content with what they got last year; they still want more. 

What shall we do? 

What is the answer? 

The answer is the Christ that lives in the heart of the peo- 
ple. Total abstinence is the answer. The answer is for us to give 
heart and life to Christ and to follow him in service. 

35. The Moderator recognized Charles W. Duling to bring 
the report from the Homes For The Aging. He read the report 
and moved its adoption. 

Report From The Homes For The Aging- 

This has been another year of God's favor upon the Homes 
and of encouraging progress. While the campaign to raise 
funds to build the fourth Home in Eastern Carolin, at Hamil- 
ton, has not been completed, yet there is good reason to be- 
lieve that the money will be secured this year and construc- 
tion will begin. Mr. Don G. Matthews of Hamilton has given 
the land for the site, and most of the $50,000 which he pro- 
mised. He is ready to give the balance when the extra $100,000 
has been raised. 



36 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Architectural plans and specifications for the enlargement 
of the infirmary at Headquarters have been prepared, and con- 
struction of 28 additional bedrooms should begin by Septem- 
ber or October. 

The two most pressing needs of the Homes for Aging now 
are (1) to finish raising the funds to start construction of the 
Hamilton Homes, and (2) to raise about $75,000 to cover the 
balance needed to pay for the additional facilities in the infir- 
mary expansion. So, a total amount of $150,000 must be raised, 
therefore, to finish these two projects. When they are com- 
pleted, 60 more bedrooms will be added for anxious and needy 
residents, thus increasing the total capacity of all the Homes 
to 170 residents. 

All connected with the N. C. Baptist Homes are most grate- 
ful to the churches, individuals, and corporations for the help 
given to the Homes.

Mr. Charles Burchett was recognized to speak to the report. 

36. The Historian, Charles Cranford was recognized to bring 
his report. 

Historian's Report 

There has been much improvement and advancement for 
the year 1958-1959. This report lists some of the visible im- 
provements within the churches. The true significance of this

to lead and direct our Association as we endeavor to promote 
the cause of Christ on earth.

38. The Moderator recognized E. L. Spivey, State Missions 
Chairman, to speak on State Missions. 

Report On State Missions 

All of us are aware that some time ago the Russians plant- 
ed their flag on the moon. As marvelous as that is to the 
scientist, there is something more important yet, namely, the 
conquest of the inner space within man. The kingdom of hea- 
ven is within you. 

Our task is to amplify and impliment our work. State 
missions is at the heart of the Bible. Missions will not begin 
anywhere unless it begins in you. The areas of our activities 
are (1) teaching the word to the people, (2) training church 
members to become more effective witnesses. 

We are not going to have world understanding until we 
have interracial understanding right here at home. We have 
here in North Carolina 501 communities with 300 to 1500 people 
that have no Baptist witness. In these communities there are 
hundreds of thousands who are unreached for Christ. Each of 
us needs to be counted in on the task of implementing the 
Lord's work. 

39. Dr. Ben Fisher of Southeastern Seminary was recogniz- 
ed. 

Report From Southeastern 

Thirty-eight percent of the Southern Baptist Convention 
is on the eastern seaboard from Maryland to Mississippi; there- 
fore, it is easy to understand the growth of Southeastern. The 
sun goes down, but the sun does not go down on the alumni of 
Southeastern Seminary. More than one out of eight pastors in 



40 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



North Carolina are men who have studied at Southeastern. 

We need to rethink the nature and necessity of having an 
educated ministry. There is no dicotomy in the ranks of educa- 
tion. 

What is the responsibility of the seminary? 

First, there is a vocational responsibility. However, a 
minister can not be made through training. Men are called of 
God first. Yet the Christian college, the Christian seminary is 
value centered. It seeks to make its students competent in their 
vocation. 

Then there is a cultural responsibility. This is the respon- 
sibility of acquainting them with a better way of life. Our 
religious responsibility is that of bringing the student into a 
daily experience of grace. 

The seminary has the objectives of teaching a sound know- 
ledge of the Bible, in order to secure a wholesome and intelli- 
gent evangelism and to implant the Christian dynamic in the 
lives of the students and to impart a sense of the significance of 
the local church. 

The responsibility of the local church is to help young 
people catch a vision of our world mission program and supply 
the money that so often stands between our young people and 
college and the seminary. 

40. H. W. Stough was recognized to present the Associational 
Calendar which is found on pages 10 - 15. 

41. Robert Lambert, pastor of the host church was recogniz-

42. Mr. W. D. Barbee, a past moderator, was called on to ask

46. Mr. R. D. Jenkins was recognized to present the Ameri- 
can Bible Societies Report. The report was read and its adop- 
tion moved. 

American Bible Society Report 

The bible is the essential tool of missions and evangelism. 
The missionary uses it in all his work. The Bible itself is a 
missionary. It can go where the human missionary cannot go. 
It can stay on after he must leave — and keep on speaking to 
a person's heart. The American Bible Society is an active part- 
ner of Southern Baptists. It serves every form of Southern 
Baptist mission work at home and abroad. The Society helps 
missionaries to translate the Bible, publishes without note or 
comment and distributes without profit, usually below cost, 



42 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



for worldwide mission work. For the blind, it supplies Scrip- 
tures at a small fraction of their cost, in Braille and other let- 
ter systems and on talking book records. 

Because the Bible Society serves mission work — and be- 
cause Southern Baptist missionaries depend on the society for 
Scriptures they need for distribution to their people — South- 
ern Baptist Churches give to the American Bible Society. 

The American Bible Society and people in mission lands, 
look to Southern Baptist churches to continue their increased 
support for providing the Word of God for every man in his 
own language. 

47. Mrs. W. S. Timberlake was recognized to present the re- 
port from the Music Department. 

Report On Church Music 

The year 1959 has been a good one for the Music Depart- 
ment of our Association. A meeting of the committee was held 
each quarter and fourty-four of the church communities were 
visited. In February, one-night-conferences were held in the 
Potecasi, Murfreesboro and Powellsville churches. Twenty 
four churches were registered at these meetings. On February 
23rd we met at Chowan College for the Regional Music Festi- 
val with four churches and eight choirs participating. 

The Severn Church was the host to the first Hymn Sing of 
the year on March 1. The second Hymn Sing was held in the 
Sandy Run Church, October 18 with 15 churches represented. 
The following evening marked the opening of the first associa- 
tional School of Church Music in the Aulander Church. During 
the week 232 people registered from 27 churches. The school 
had an average attendance of 110 for the week. Mr. J. O. Strong 
of Raleigh, Mr. Donald Hinshaw, Wilson, Mrs. Daniel Spell, 
Powellsville, Mrs. William Lawrence, Murfreesboro and Mrs. 
James Chamblee, Murfreesboro, composed the faculty. Many 
of those in attendance expressed a desire to have a School of 
Church Music every year. The school cost approximately 
$60.00. 

On December 22 there will be a Carol Sing on each of the 
County Courthouse Lawns in the Association. In Jackson, Win- 
ton and Windsor at 6:30 P. M. all Baptists who enjoy and love 
the Christmas Carols are invited to hear the Church Choirs. 

Your Director wishes to thank the members of her com- 
mittee for their untiring efforts and their faithful service and

for the support she has received from the churches of the As- 
sociation. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. W. S. Timberlake 

48. H. W. Stough, in the absence of the Sunday School Sup- 
erintendent gave the Sunday School report, and moved its 
adoption. 

Sunday School Report 

The Associational Sunday School Work made two out- 
standing advances this year in the area of training and teach- 
ing the officers and teachers of the 60 Sunday Schools of our 
association. 

Group schools held in January enrolled 454 workers in the 
five study courses which were offered at the Ashleys Grove, 
Seaboard, Harrellsville, Union, Greens Cross and Lewiston 
churches. The average attendance for the five nights was 336, 
and 328 awards were earned by studying the books required for 
the diplomas. Those who attended were enthusiastic about this 
stimulating training program, and several churches continued 
this training program in their churches. 

The other advance was in enrolling leaders for the age- 
group conferences. The association was divided into "groups," 
using the county boundary lines. The Bertie, Hertford and 
Northampton Groups now have a full faculty of officers, just 
as an association would have, and two meetings were held 
on the "group" basis instead of being association-wide. During 
the coming year, there will be four Sunday School meetings 
in each of these three groups. 

A Clinic for the Associational and Group officers was held 
in September to launch the programs for 1959-60. The Associa- 
tional Superintendent also had conferences with his officers 
during the year to prepare for the meetings. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry W. Stough 

49. Charles Sinclair read the Training Union report and 
moved its adoption. 

Training Union Report 

The Associational Training Union has endeavored to pro- 
mote an aggressive program this year. We are happy to report 
there have been improvements in our work. Thirty churches 



44 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



of the association have Training Unions with a total enrolment 
of 2,035, an increase of 40 over last year. We would like to 
commend the Brantley's Grove and Seaboard Churches for 
starting a Training Union this year. We would have you note 
that the Edge wood Chapel Church has increased its Training 
Union enrollment from 40 reported in 1958 to 103 in 1959. 

In order to help our churches in their program of train- 
ing, your Training Union has sponsored several associational 
meetings. "M" Night was held December 1st at the Ahoskie 
Bautist Church. Rev. Archie Turner of Scotland Neck was 
the speaker. There were 346 in attendance at "M" Night, an 
increase of 71 over the year before. 

The high point of the year was six schools to train our 
people in Soul Winning. These schools were held at the Elam, 
Roberts Chapel, Menola, Bethlehem, Connaritsa, and Riverside 
Churches. As a result of these schools a new record of Training 
Union awards received was set. The people of our association 
received 664 training union awards. But more significant, our 
people were trained in personal soul winning. 

Your association also sponsored Youth Night and its 
tournaments in the spring and a second Church Officers and 
Committees Clinic in the fall. 

May I say in closing, it has been a real pleasure to serve 
as your Training Union director for the past three years. I 
appreciate the loyal support of each Training Union officer 
and worker in the local church and the association. I am parti- 
cularly grateful to our Secretary of Promotion for his con- 
stant help.

Christian Literature 

Our literature is the hub around which all the work of our 
denomination at home and abroad revolves. Without it, we 
would lack inspiration and information concerning all the work 
of our church. In addition, we would be utterly unable to carry 
out the program of our Sunday Schools, Training Unions and 
all groups of the W. M. U. were it not for this splendid flow 
of Christian Literature which comes like a golden flood into 
our churches. 

On our mission fields great expense and much work goes 
into the publication of material in the language of the nationals 
that they might promote their plans and programs with great- 
er effectiveness. Few denominations, if any, provide such a 
volume and variety of excellent periodicals for the use of its 
people as have the Baptists. The availability of these publica- 
tions is a blessing not to be lightly esteemed, and we should 
supply ourselves with an ever increasing amount of all that 
we can profitably put to use. 

Here in North Carolina, we are particularly blessed in the 
fine quality and character of the organ of our State Convention, 
"The Biblical Recorder," which is year by year entering more 
of our Baptist homes. Dr. L. L. Carpenter has served us faith- 
fully and well, and with his retirement this year, there has 
been called to the Editor's chair, a fine Christian layman, Mr. 
Marse Grant, who has distinguished himself as the able editor 
of our N. C. Baptist Orphanage paper, "Charity and Children." 

"Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words 
of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written 
therein: for the time is at hand." Revelation 1:3.

an invitation anywhere and would Hke to hear from two 
churches. 

54. The Moderator recognized the chairman of the Resolu- 
tions Committee. Harold Tribble, Jr. stated that the commit-

tee favorably reported the following resolution and moved 
its adoption. 

That the West Chowan Baptist Asociation petition the pro- 
per authorities of the North Carolina National Guard in re- 
gards to the following: We solicit them to evolve a plan of 
training that will do the least harm to the organization and 
respect the wishes and desires of the many men and officers 
who have a conviction about the matter of a Sunday training 
program. 

We also desire that a copy of this be sent to the Governor 
of North Carolina, the Adjudant General, and to the commit- 
tee of the North Carolina Baptist State Convention. 

Following the adoption of this resolution the committees 
report was read. 

Report Of The Resolutions Committee 

"In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in 
Christ Jesus concerning you." I Thessalonians 5:18. 

Since the announcement was made a year ago that we 
were invited to meet with the Lewiston and Bethany Churches

Association we have looked forward to this occasion with an- 
ticipation. 

Therefore, be it resolved: 

1. That to the host churches for the bountiful lunches and 
gracious courtesies we shall remember with grateful ap- 
preciation. 

2. That to Gordon Maddrey, the moderator, and to the Com- 
mittee on Order of Business for the program planning, and 
to those who participated in the inspirational messages and 
in the mission challenges that stirred our minds and hearts, 
we sincerely express our gratitude. 

3. That to those who provided for the bountiful flower ar- 
rangements throughout the churches and to all those with 
the greatest degree of responsibility and those with the 
simplest form of service, we say thank you. 

4. That each of us continue earnestly in prayer and work 
diligently that His will may be done through us and by us.

How the West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized November 9. 1769, (according to 
Paschall). Sandy Run (then called Bertie) was the only West Chowan church in 
the organization. 

2. In 1806, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke River, North of the 
River in North Carolina became the Chowan Association. The following West 
Chowan churches were in the new organization: Ahoskie, Sandy Run. Bethlehem. 
Cashie, Meherrin. Ross (then called Ross' Meeting House), Colerain (then 
called Wiccacon). 

3. In 1883 the Chowan Association divided at the Chowan River and the three 
counties between the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers became the West Chowan 
Association. Twenty-eight churches formed the Association. 

The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in America. The 
Philadelphia formed in 1707 was first ; the Charleston (S. C.) in 1751; the Sandy 
Creek (around Sanford) in 1758: and the Kehukee in 1769.

CONSTITUTION 

NAME 

Article 1. This body shall be known as the West Chowan 
Baptist Association of North Carolina. 

MEMBERSHIP 

Article 2. It shall be composed of Messengers elected by 
the churches connected with this body and all ordained minis- 
ters who are pastors of said churches, together with the of- 
ficers of this Association, and chairmen of all standing com- 
mittees. Each church of one hundred members and under shall 
be entitled to two Messengers, and for each additional one 
hundred members, an additional Messenger, provided that 
no church shall have more than ten messengers. 

PURPOSE 

Article 3. The purpose of this Association shall be to in- 
spire, encourage, and enlist its membership in a spirit of 
brotherly love and co-operation, for the promotion of the en- 
tire program of our denomination; to the end that the gospel 
of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ might be proclaimed 
with greater power and effectiveness in our Association, our 
State and Nation, and unto the uttermost part of the world. 

POWERS AND PREROGATIVES 

Article 4. The Association shall have no power to in- 
fringe upon the sovereignty or rights of the churches. It is 
neither an ecclesiastical nor legislative council, nor a court of 
appeal. It may advise the churches and recommend measures 
of usefulness for their adoption, but cannot bind them in any 
way. However, in view of the combined wisdom, piety and 
inteligence of the Association, it justly claims the very highest 
consideration and regard for itself, its objects and its recom- 
mendations. 

Article 5. Any Baptist church in good standing approv- 
ing the design, objects and principles of this Association, and 
holding the same doctrines and ordinances, may be admitted 
into fellowship upon 2/3 vote of the messengers. All applica- 
tions shall be referred to the Executive Committee for study. 
Churches desiring membership should give notice by making 
application one year in advance.

mittee, and to bring a layman with them. Only a few re- 
sponded to this invitation. 

We regretfully accepted the resignation of our Moderator 
the Rev. C. W. Duling who accepted a church in another state. 
As a result of this action Mr. W. T. Charles, vice moderator, 
was appointed moderator, and Rowland Pruette was elected 
to fill the office thus vacated. 

A committee was appointed to draw up a pamphlet to 
explain to new pastors in the association the associational 
program and the work of the promotional secretary. The 
treasurer was authorized to reimburse the promotional secre- 
tary for the extra expenses he incurred in connection with the 
school of missions. The churches of the association were sin- 
gularly blessed as a result of this endeavor, and we are grate- 
ful to Brother Stough for his conscientious efforts in this 
major undertaking as well as in the many comparably minor 
undertakings that fill our associational calendar. 

We endorsed, at the last meeting, the necessary consti- 
tutional change made necessary by the action of the associa- 
tion last year in regards to the moderator of the Bertie Union 
Meeting becoming a member of the executive committee. 
The associational budget for 1960-1961 was approved. 

At his request the treasurer was authorized and instruct- 
ed to be bonded in the amount of $1000 by a suitable bonding 
agent or company. 

Our committee was diminished during the year by the 
removal from the association of C. W. Duling and Charles

Cranford. We lost one of our most devoted and faithful mem- 
bers when we lost the late Mr. W. Harvey Vinson of Menola. 
He took his membership on our committee seriously, and we 
regret his passing from us. We shall miss the valuable con- 
tributions of these friends to our work in the days to come. 

This, we respectfully submit, as a report of our years 
endeavor in behalf of our association. 

W. T. Charles, moderator 
Levi Gillikin, clerk 

9. The following new pastors in the association were recog- 
nized and extended a cordial welcome: Donald McNair, 
E. E. Ballard, E Lynn Weston, Aubrey C. Sanders, Earl 
Haynes, J. R. Puett, John Deans, Andrew H. Lanier, and 
Victor Batchelor. 

10. William Lawrence was recognized to bring the treasurer's 
report. He read the report and moved its adoption.

The Finance Committee recommends that the above 
Budget be adopted by the West Chowan Baptist Association 
for the Associational Year of 1960-1961, in order to meet the 
needs of our active and fruitful associational work. 

In order to meet the budget, the Finance Committee furth- 
er recommends that each church give 75c for each resident 
church member as reported to the Association this year. The 
Committee is grateful for the generous response and support 
of the work during the past year, and especially to those 
churches which have pledged the 75c per resident member 
during the past year since the Baptist State Convention will 
give $120.00 less this year to our work, we will need all of our 
churches to support the work generously. 

If your church has not yet voted to give 75c per resident 
member, will you bring this matter to your church at your 
next business meeting? 

Thank you again for your prayers, interest and generous 
support of our associational work.

Rowland S. Pruette, Chairman

12. The promotional secretary, H. W. Stough, was recognized 
to bring his report. He read the report and moved its adoption.

Promotional Secretaries Report 

Many and varied are the activities of the Secretary of 
Promotion. Personal conferences, meetings with nominating, 
pulpit and other committees, working with the associational 
officers and leaders of the organizations, conducting study 
courses in the local churches, promoting all types of associa- 
tional meetings, and sending out promotional material, are all 
a part of his work. 

Last year there was a strengthening of the Sunday School 
and the Music activities. The Schools of Missions, with 58 
churches participating, was a blessing to every co-operating 
church. The associational School of Music helped our churches 
in this expression of praise. The Clinic for Church Officers 
and Committees was helpful to those attending. The brother- 
hood work went forward in a fine way with the new organi- 
zational set-up. 

Our associational work is stronger and more helpful to 
our churches. The future looks better with the increasing en- 
listment and development of leaders who will make our work 
still more effective. 

Last year your Secretary sent out over 975 copies of "The 
West Chowan Baptist" each month to church officers and lea- 
ders, as well as innumerable cards and letters and other print- 
edd material. He has driven over 24,000 miles to assist the 
churches and promote the Lord's work wherever he has found 
a place of service. Please pray for him as he continues to serve 
the Lord and this association. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Henry W. Stough 

Then, speaking to the report, Mr. Stough began to speak 
of some of the needs in the association. He said, "Our churches 
need each other for encouragement and love. We need co- 
operation. We need to realize that we are not alone in the 
work. We are workers together for Christ." 

Our church work has at least five mission fields. First, 
there is the local mission field, the winning of the lost to Jesus. 
Your church has a mission field right in your own community. 
The second area of mission work is the associational mission 



32 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



work. One church can not reach the whole area. Evangelism 
and missions is one work. Teaching and training is a part of 
this missionary endeavour. We have a great deal to do in en- 
listing our present membership in supporting this work. Then 
there are the fields of State, Home and Foreign Missions. We 
must cooperate in order to support this mission work. 

Our churches need a strong full-time program. It is pos- 
sible for a church to have a full-time ministry even though 
they have part-time preaching. Some churches need to enlist 
the aid of the Department of Church Development in taking 
a survey to ascertain the churches real possibilities in sup- 
porting a full-time ministry. We need to enlist every member 
of the church in the program of the church. The men need to 
be enlisted in the Brotherhood. Often we have the besetting 
sin of loading down a person with the work of four or five. 
Consequently, we need to enlist and train our people so that 
the work can be better distributed. 

Go back home and plan to do this. 

We need an aggressive program to raise the moral and 
spiritual tone of our communities. The church needs to be the 
spiritual leader in the community. Jesus told his disciples 
that he should be put first in their lives. We have to develop 
this spirit in our people. Under God we can do great things. 

Report On Christian Education 

13. The Rev. Lonnie Sasser was recognized to bring the re- 
port on Christian Education. It was read, moved and adopted. 

North Carolina Baptists promote a program of education 
much wider in scope than that represented in their seven 
colleges. In the local churches there are numerous activities 
along with the Sunday School relating to education. All these 
activities are promoted through a special division known as 
Church Programs. Through the Southern Baptist Convention 
North Carolina Baptists share in the promotion and support 
of the seven seminaries which are administered through 
trustees elected by the Southern Baptist Convention. 

Through a Division of Christian Education in the Baptist 
State Convention of North Carolina the work of seven col- 
leges is promoted. These are Wake Forest, Meredith, Mars 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



33 



Hill, Gardner-Webb, Wingate, Chowan, and Campbell. In 
the last year there were enrolled in these seven colleges some 
8,100 students. Their annual operating costs were above $10,- 
000,000, with approximately $500,000 of this coming through 
our Cooperative Program plan of giving. An additional $600,- 
000 was provided for capital outlay or plant improvement 
and expansion. Without the addition of new buildings it is 
not possible for these colleges to enroll many more students 
than the number taken last year. 

Last year, 1959, there were graduated from our North 
Carolina nigh schools 42,954 students. Of this number there 
were 32,441 white high school graduates. It is safe to esti- 
mate that of this 32,441 graduates 15,000 were Baptist. Almost 
exactly one out of three enrolled in some college last Septem- 
ber, leaving the other two out of three without college train- 
ing. So, of our 15,000 Baptist youth graduating from high 
school in 1959, 10,000 never enrolled in college. Of this 10,000 
ending their education with high school, one-fourth of them 
were in the upper third of their high school graduating class. 
Thus, we see that a majority of our Baptist young people will 
never become ministers, teachers, lawyers, doctors, nor any 
of the many other professions open only to those having an 
opportunity to go to college. Of the 8,103 students in our seven 
Baptist colleges last year, 5,000 were Baptist. There were some 
13,000 Baptists students in other colleges. 

It is believed that by 1970 we shall have in North Carolina 
not 15,000 white Baptist boys and girls graduating from high 
school each year but 30,000; and that we may expect a much 
larger percentage to go to college. It seems conservative to 
predict that at least 35,000 Baptist boys and girls will be in 
college within ten years. The question confronting us is where 
shall we provide for their college training? Shall we main- 
tain the status quo in our Baptist colleges and ask the state 
to provide for them through increased taxes, or other de- 
nominations to provide for them in their colleges, or would 
it be better for Baptists to face the facts with vision and cour- 
age and provide Christian education for their future leaders? 
Let us not be afraid to think together and ask God to guide 
us to do His will in whatever we do. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lonnie Sasser

14. The moderator introduced Dr. Bruce Whitaker of Cho- 
wan College who brought the following report. 

Report On Chowan College 

The college has assets of $1,700,000 and an indebtedness 
of $585,000. The indebtedness is related to the three new 
buildings on the campus, namely, the dormitory for young 
women, a cafeteria, and a dormitory for young men. 

There are a total of 613 students enrolled this academic 
year. Of this number 585 are regular students; the remainder 
are special students. They come from sixty counties in North 
Carolina, eleven different states, and two foreign countries. 
This year we have a "Rotary Exchange Student" from Fin- 
land. This is a signal honor for the college, in that there are 
few colleges that have "exchange students," and Chowan was 
selected for this honor by District 771 of Rotary International 
which sponsors the student. 

The atmosphere of spiritual greatness matters most on a 
college campus, and I must say that it is as good as the atmos- 
phere observed in our best churches. 

We are going forward in the Development Program under 
the direction of Oscar Creech. We need to raise $100,000 by 
February 1, 1961 for short term notes on the new buildings. 

We could not operate without the funds from the Baptist 
State Convention. I want everybody to know that we do not 
lose one penny from the State Convention when a person 
designates a gift to Chowan. 

All, save two, of the churches of the West Chowan Baptist 
Association gave $6,807.26 during the past year. We received 
$11,347.46 from the associations as a whole. We have seventy- 
three students from the West Chowan Association. The as- 
sociation, therefore, contributed $93.24 per student to the col- 
lege for the students from the association. Please bear in 
mind that the college must raise for each student enrolled an 
additional $300.00 over and above student fees. 

We need more money. Gardner-Webb received above 
$33,000 last year from the churches in their surrounding as- 
sociations. I believe in the program of the colleges. I am proud 



West Chowan Baptist Association

of its achievement and growing prestige. We need your pray- 
ers, we need your undergirding financial support. 

Let us help you in any way we can. 

15. Charles Sinclair led the body in singing "O Zion Haste." 

16. The moderator recognized visitors from other associa- 
tions. Clarence Godwin and J. H. Moore stood. 

17. Mrs. Cecil Lowe brought the report from the Woman's 
Missionary Union. She moved its adoption without being read. 
After this, representatives of the Sunbeams, Girls Auxiliary 
and Young Womans Auxiliary shared with the group some of 
the songs they sing, steps they pass, ideas and reactions they 
have to their programs, and the ideals to which they aspire. 
The association was, therefore, entertained, instructed, put 
in a very good humor, and touched quite tenderly at the heart 
by the warmth of Christ's love, the wealth that is youth's, and 
the worth-whileness of the sacrifices necessary to promote the 
youth programs of the Womans Missionary Society.

18. The moderator recognized the Rev. W. Isac Terrell to 
bring the annual sermon. The scripture Eph. 3: 1-13 was reaa 
by Charles Sinclair. Mr. Terrell's subject was God's Plan For 
cne Ages. 

"THE PLAN OF THE AGES" 

The great need with those of us who have grown weary 
in well doing — who have become discouraged in our service 
for Christ, is to see with new insight God's plan for the ages 
and to thrill in the knowledge that we in the church are 
having a significant part in the destiny of the human race. 

Our service takes on an eternal significance when we see 
it in relation to God's great scheme for world redemption. 

In our text Paul sees Christ in and through his church 
fulfilling God's intention in history. Here is the church in its 
cosmic setting as the agent of God. Paul sees all of history as 
His story. 

I. The greatest and mightiest plan ever conceived for the 
good of man is God's Plan for the Ages. 

Plato dreamed of a Utopia. Karl Marx gave to the world 
the theory of Communism which he claimed to be best for 
the human race. Millions have been disillusioned by propa- 
gandist of this plan. Hitler, Alexander, Napoleon and others 
proposed their ideologies which they sought to impose on the 
world. 

Russia has had a series of 5 year plans since 1928 for 
political and industrial development. 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



37 



In the depression of the early 30's we remember Franklin 
D. Roosevelt with his New Deal which assisted our nation's 
business in recovery. The Social Security Act has been the 
lastingly significant contribution of this plan. 

Harry S. Truman's "Fair Deal" was a plan for demobiliza- 
tion after World War II which also applied the "New Deal" 
to current problems. 

The Marshall Plan, to help 16 war ridden nations of 
Europe to recovery, has been one of the noble programs of 
history. 

But all these plans are temporary and grossly inadequate 
to meet man's deepest need. God's plan is for all ages. It is 
global universal, and ageless. 

His plan is in Christ to make whole again the lost human 
race, and to unite all men in the "Kingdom of Heaven" break- 
ing down the petitions that divide men, thus bringing peace. 

To give ourselves to this "Plan of the Ages" is the high- 
est goal we can attain in life. To have a part in the destiny 
of a single nation is a great privlege, but to have a part 
through God's plan in the destiny of the whole human race is 
greater. 

The thrill and adventure our forefathers felt as they came 
to these shores and visualized here on this continent a new 
and great nation is not to be compared with the thrill of 
having a part in a kingdom that shall have no end — God's 
kingdom. 

II. Every Great Plan Calls for Four Things 

1. First, a mastermind to give birth to the idea. 

The plan of redemption was born in the heart and mind 
of God. Foreseeing the fate of His creation He planned to send 
His Son in redemption. 

2. Second, a blue print. 

God's blue print of His plan is in Scripture. Throughout 
the Bible the plan takes form and is culminated in Jesus 
Christ. 

3. Third, materials with which to implement the idea. 
The plan of God is implemented by the church, dedicated 

manhood, which is Christ's own possession. 



38 West Chowan Baptist Association 



4. Fourth, there must be legislative power to initiate the 
plan. 

The power behind this plan is God's power, the power of 
the Holy Spirit. "When ye are endued with power from on 
high, ye shall be witnesses unto me." "Go . . . teach all na- 
tions." 

III. If this global strategy for world Christian conquest is 
recaptured in this day of "Open Doors" we need a fourfold 
experience. 

1. A new insight into God's plan and purpose in history. 

We are not just repeating one cycle of history after anoth- 
er. We are headed toward a destiny with God. 

2. We must see anew that ours is a lost world. 

As God looks down from heaven with each generation he 
sees again, as in earlier days — "and God saw that the wicked- 
ness of man was great upon the earth — and it grieved him at 
his heart." — Genesis 6: 5. 

3. Again we must come to a new realization of the value 
of our faith. 

Its value to restore confidence in a world where there is 
questioning and suspicion. Its power to unite all men under 
the one banner of Jesus Christ. Its power to bridge gaps in 
human relationships. Our faith isn't a cheap luxury but a 
costly necessity for our day. 

4. We need a fresh experience with the living Christ. 
The modern missionary expansion is largely due to the 

awakenings of past generations. 

We need a fresh experience with Christ that will give to 
our missionary task a new thrust. 

May God help us to realize in our time the full purpose 
for which he made us and redeemed us; that Christ may today 
in and through our churches fulfill God's intention in history, 
thus fulfilling our mission in this "Plan of the Ages."

19. Announcements were made concerning the lunch, after 
which, the Rev. Jack Painter asked the blessing. 

Afternoon Session 

20. The moderator opened the afternoon session and the Rev. 
Len Weston was recognized to present the devotional. He 
read Romans 12: 1-11 and then led in prayer. 

21. Rowland Pruette, chairman of the nominating committee, 
was recognized to bring his report. The report was read and 
its adoption moved. The moderator asked for nominations 
from the floor. The nominations were closed and John Davis 
moved that the report be adopted. (This report is incorporat- 
ed in the minutes on pages three and eight.) 

22. The report from the committee on committees was read 
by the moderator, the chairman being absent. The motion to 
adopt was made, seconded and ordered. (This report is in- 
corporated in the minutes on pages four and seven.) 

23. Miscellaneous business was the next matter that claimed 
the body's attention. John Davis proposed the following 
amendment to the constitution. 

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT 

In keeping with the intent and purpose of the Resolution 
presented last year by Brother Robert Lambert (item No. 55, 
page 47, 1959 Minutes) relative to a Constitutional amend- 
ment to make the Executive Committee of the West Chowan 
Association completely representative of all the churches of 
the Association, the following amendment to the Constitution 
of the West Chowan Association is offered: 

"That Article 20 of the West Chowan Association Consti- 
tution be amended as follows: 

1 — that the first and second paragraphs be deleted; 

2 — that the following paragraph be inserted in the place 
of paragraphs one and two; 

"The Executive Committee of the Association shall be 
composed of the following: Moderator, Vice-Moderator , Clerk, 
Treasurer, Supt. of Woman's Missionary Union, Promotional 
Secretary, Supt. of Sunday School, Director of Training

West Chowan Baptist Association 



Union^ President of Brotherhood, Chairman of Evangelism, 
Director of Music. Moderator of the Bertie Union, the Pastor 
of each Church of the Association, provided that the Pastor 
is a member of the Church he represents, and one layman — 
nominated by each Church and elected by the Association." 

3— This Amendment shall take effect October 1, 1961. 

24. The second reading before the association of Item 55, 
1959 Minutes was read, and on motion was defeated. 

25. The clerk moved that Article 20, be amended in para- 
graph one, line six, by inserting after the word "Music," the 
following: "the moderator of the Bertie Union Meeting!' 

26. The Rev. Lonnie Sasser read a proposed amendment to 
Article VI of the constitution. 

27. The Rev. W. E. Carter was recognized. He read Article 
X of the constitution and suggested limiting the length of 
service of the officers of the association to five consecutive 
years. 

28. Rowland Pruette was recognized to present Garland 
Hendricks of Southeastern Seminary. Mr. Hendricks spoke on 

PASTOR— CHURCH RELATIONSHIPS 

What is involved in God's calling of a minister to a 
church? This involves a decision by the church, the minister, 
and the Holy Spirit. It isn't easy to interpret this, but we have 
a way of sensing this at the beginning of the relationship. 
When the new minister comes he represents the coming of a 
God-called man to do a particular work. 

What should a church expect of a pastor? There is a 
tendency to expect too much. Sometimes churches expect too 
little. We need to be reasonable and realistic. Among other 
things the minister should love and understand people. He 
should be a good counselor and a good administrator. 

What should a pastor expect of a church? Here again we 
must exercise our reason. The minister should be provided 
a place to live. He should have a salary adequate to his needs. 
He should have also the support of responsible leaders in 
the church. 



West Chowan Baptist Association

The church that makes ministers is the one that loves 
him. The church that breaks ministers is the one that is 
always sniping. The minister should have the freedom of the 
pulpit, but he can't be a coward in it. 

The minister is confronted with many problems. He is 
one responsible for many tasks. He lives in the limelight, in 
a glass house. He is a servant of all kinds of people. Often 
people have an inadequate understanding of his problems. 

There are problems on the other side of pastor-church 
relations. The church has problems too. How much of a pro- 
gram should a church undertake? When should it have a full 
time program — not until it can support a minister, not until it 
can afford adequate facilities including equipment, not until 
it can do these things, and still support the missions program. 

Sometimes churches have the problem of a rapid change 
of pastors. Consequently, they hesitate to employ a student 
pastor. However, the average student pastor stays as long as 
the average non-student pastor. Then too, we should consider 
that it is possible that God wills to have a change of pastors. 
Each one is different and contributes something different. A 
different emphasis is sometimes needed. Again, it is quite pos- 
sible that the church can help contribute something to the stu- 
dent minister or young minister to help prepare him for a 
greater future ministry. We always want, and try to get, a 
man who can make a good contribution. 

Some things are mutually beneficial. There should be a 
mutual understanding of what the church expects of the 
pastor and of what the pastor expects of the church. If pos- 
sible the pastor should live on the church field. The pastor 
has to learn how to use his time wisely. The pastor and people 
should pray for each other. Pastor and people should practice 
democratic procedures in making decisions. Finally, each 
should remember that Christ is the head of the church. 

29. The group stood and sang "O God Our Help in Ages 
Past." 

30. The moderator introduced and presented Mr. J. H. Moore, 
a member of the convention's "Committee on the Advance 
Program for our Colleges." 

Mr. Moore stated that it is up to Baptists to provide for 
our Baptist boys and girls. If the committee's recommenda- 



42 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



tions are adopted by the convention, he related, that by 1970 
Chowan College could expect to enroll 1220 students and that 
the other colleges would increase in size correspondingly. He 
said that Chowan would need $5,000,000.00 in order to do its 
job. Mr. Moore concluded his remarks saying, "by sacrificing 
the price of a four cent postage stamp a day we can support 
this program. Let us sacrifice and do the job that we ought to 
do." 

31. The moderator made a few concluding announcements, 
and called on John Davis to say the benediction, after which 
the session adjourned. 



The Second Day s Proceedings 

32. The seventy-eighth annual session of the association was 
continued in the sanctuary of the Rich Square Baptist Church 
on October 26th. The moderator called the session to order. 
Charles Sinclair led the body in singing "Lead On O King 
Eternal." 

33. The Rev. R. Lee King, host pastor, led the morning de- 
votional. 

34. Mrs. Carlton Cherry was recognized to bring the report 
on Christian Literature. She moved that her report be adopted 
without its being read. Then she introduced Mr. J. Marse 
Grant, editor of the Biblical Recorder. 

Mr. Grant stated that the mission of the Biblical Recorder 
was to promote and publicize the work of Baptists. Secondly, 
a state paper must put its ringer on social and spiritual weak- 
nesses. Then it provides a forum for discussion from varying 
view points, e.g.. letters to the editors. Finally, it endeavours 
to tell the whole story from the moral view point. Otherwise, 
its reason for existence ceases. 

In concluding, Mr. Grant said that the twenty-five ten 
thousandth of an inch, which is the thickness of the ink on a 
printed page, is the most important thickness in the world 
today.

Christian Literature 

The first aim for Advancement in the Woman's Mission- 
ary Society is world awareness. All Christians should be 
aware and concerned for all peoples of the world, but we can- 
not be concerned unless we are informed. 

Our Christian Literature is one channel through which 
flows the information about the happenings in our world. 

In this changing world the Biblical Recorder, under the 
able editor, J. Marse Grant, has kept its readers abreast of the 
times. "In a dark world the Everlasting Light is needed to help 
men find the way to truth and righteousness." 

Someone has said, keep reading, it causes people to think, 
to feel and to act. 

What do you read, and do you choose to read the best? 

The Bible warns, give attention to reading. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mrs. Carlton Cherry 

35. The Rev. Mr. L. H. Hollingsworth, chaplain of Wake 
Forest College, was recognized. He spoke briefly about the 
college. 

36. Mr. H. W. Stough presented the Associational Calendar 
and moved its adoption. 

37. Charles Sinclair moved that the report from the Baptist 
Hospital be adopted without being read. He introduced Dr. 
W. K. Mc Gee who stated that the hospital closed the year 
with a deficit. He suggested that some one person be selected 
by each church to be responsible for promoting the Mother's 
Day offering in the local church. 

Report On N. C. Baptist Hospital 

The Ministry of our Baptist Hospital touches every area 
of our state. It touches the family life of about a quarter of 
a million of our people each year. The Mother's Day Fund 
provides money with which our hospital gives assistance to 
those who cannot pay the full cost of their care. Our hospital 



44 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



almost doubles our gifts with matching funds from welfare 
agencies and other gifts. 

Jesus and the New Testament writers show us that we 
as Christians should provide such a ministry for our needy, 
sick neighbors. Do we really want such a ministry? It cannot 
be provided except at great cost. Our hospital receives about 
3%% of our Co-operative Program funds for payments on the 
buildings, purchase of expensive equipment and for the De- 
partment of Pastoral Care. Our Mother's Day Fund provides 
the money to help pay the hospital bills of needy sick persons. 
The amount of this fund determines for the most part the 
amount of help our Hospital can give. 

If we are serious about this ministry which was so close 
to the heart of our Lord, and want our Hospital to give help 
when our people need it, we are going to have to become seri- 
ous about our giving to the Mother's Day Fund. Our Hospital 
is facing a grave financial problem, and if it is to give free 
service we are going to have to contribute the money to fi- 
nance the program. 

One way we can support this work is to plan for it, to 
make somebody in each church responsible for it, to let our 
people know about the need, and to challenge them to give 
of their means. We come to ask you to do it in your church — 
not for the hospital, but for the sick people who are in need. 
In 1960 the churches of the West Chowan Association gave 
$4,667.24. This was $164.29 better than the year before. Surely 
we can do even better in the coming year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Charles Sinclair 

38. The Rev. Mr. Randolph Phillips spoke of the work of 
Southeastern Seminary. He stated that the seminary had 
celebrated the 10th anniversary of its opening this past Sep- 
tember. He continued and spoke of the needs of the library 
and the especial need of endowment for the library in the 
amount of $250,000. 

39. "Faith of our Fathers" was sung. 

40. The Rev. L. Edgar Whitlock presented the Historian's 
Report and moved its adoption.

Historian's Report 

The years 1959-1960 were a period of unrest throughout 
the world. Church and State separation was discussed widely 
in the year of political elections. The pros and cons aroused 
the interest of many of the members. 

The national census reported our area of the state to be a 
declining population area. This should be remembered when 
making a study of our progress. 

Poor attendance was observed at some of the association- 
wide meetings, such as, the Bertie Union Meeting, but in- 
creased attendance at other meetings has somewhat offset 
these low figures. One of the most convincing reports of the 
association is the tremendously successful Schools of Mis- 
sions and the School of Music. 

We recognize true advances cannot always be measured 
by the historical report. Numbers and figures do not always 
correctly report the spiritual state of an association. How- 
ever, we do believe this to have been a good year both spirit- 
ually and materially. The year has been one with a minimum 
of dissention and a year of missionary emphasis. 

The material achievements and losses are as follows: 

Ahoskie — The Rev. and Mrs. L. C. Pinnix became part of the 
church staff in January, serving as the Minister of Educa- 
tion and Youth, and Minister of Music, respectively. A 
service of dedication of the Educationanl Building was 
held on December 27th. 

Bethlehem — Painted the exterior of the church. Observed its 
125th anniversary September 4th. 

Buckhorn — Dedicated, debt-free, a new parsonage in Decem- 
ber and voted to begin an Educational Building fund. 

Capeharts — Enlarged one class room and installed an indoor 
bulletin board, and gutters, drains, and lights outside. 
Three stained glass windows were broken during a hurri- 
cane. 

Colerain — Began a special fund to refinish the exterior of 
the church. 



46 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



Connaritsa — Retired a building indebtedness of of $600, under- 
pinned the church and installed lights at the exits. 

Creech Memorial — Retired the note on the church's indebt- 
edness, built an additional class room, and made improve- 
ments on the grounds. The parsonage floors were refinish- 
ed and storm doors installed. A typewriter fund was 
begun. 

Creeksville — Erected an educational building at a cost of $17,- 
162. A fund to purchase an organ in memory of Mr. G. T. 
Futrell, Sunday School Supt. for thirty years, was begun. 

Galatia — Spent $8,000 on an educational building. Hurricane 
destruction amounted to $60. 

Greens Cross — Purchased new pews and a new electric organ. 
Refinished floors in the Sunday School, built brick steps, 
added a concrete wall around the church grounds, painted 
the parsonage and screened the back porch. 

Holly Grove — Improved church grounds. 

Holly Springs — Painted the outside of the church and re- 
decorated the sanctuary: refinishing the floors, installing 
new pews, pulpit furniture, carpet and repainting. 

Harrellsville — Installed a new heating system in the parson- 
age. Ordained C. R. Crawford and Luther Whitley as dea- 
cons. 

Jackson — A new sanctuary was constructed and furnished. 

Kelford — Furnished the guest room in the parsonage. Tiled 
the church foyer. 

Lasher — Constructed a $20,000 parsonage, began the rotating 
system for deacons, and held a second annual Coronation 
Service. 

Lawrence — Built three new classrooms and installed heaters. 
Painted the Sunday School building and repaired the 
piano. 

Mars Hill — Constructed an $18,000 parsonage. 

Merry Hill — Underpinned the church and installed storm 
windows, painted class rooms, equipped the pastor's study, 
purchased new pulpit furniture and made extensive im- 
provements to the church grounds. The parsonage bath- 
room floor was tiled and the room painted.

Mount Tarbor — Improved the lawn. 

Murfreesboro — Remodeled the sanctuary, air conditioned the 
church and installed new lighting arrangements. 

Oak Grove — Ordained Arthur Hurdle, McCoy Barnes, and 
James Rawls as deacons. 

Pleasant Grove — Built an enclosed picnic shelter, collected 
$1865 for the building fund, adopted a new system of re- 
cording the church's financial business, ordained Jackson 
Terry, deacon, and purchased the new Baptist Hymnal. 

Potecasi — Laid a new carpet in the sanctuary and painted the

41. Rowland Pruette introduced Dr. Julian Hopkins who 
represented the Baptist State Convention. 

The cooperative program undergirds the work of our in- 
stitutions and agencies of the State and Southern Conventions. 
The falling off of cooperative program receipts is due to in- 
creased designations. We have not been giving proportionately 
to the cooperative program of our increased blessings. 

We are coming to the time when a half-hearted Christian- 
ity will fail. This half-hearted tendency is deeper than the 
monetary level. It is a spiritual problem. You can appeal to 
men for money only when you have touched their souls. 

Money, however, reflects our spiritual depth. 

The falling off of baptisms is also a matter of great con- 
cern. Something is happening to us, not only in North Caro- 
lina, but also all over the Southern Convention. 

What can we do? 

We have to deal with sin as we deal with cancer: cut 
early , cut wide, and cut deep. 

We must rediscover, and reestablish the true objective of 
Cod for his people - the redemption of the world. 

Our motive must be our love for the Master. We can't 
love the world as God loves it until we learn to love Jesus 
first, with all that is in our being. 

42. The group stood and sang "From Greenlands Icy Moun- 
tains " 

43. Mrs. Julian Porter moved that her report be adopted 
without being read. She then introduced Dr. Luther Copeland, 
professor of missions, Southeastern Seminary. 

In a sense, Dr Copeland said, we always live from crisis 
to crisis. However, there are significant challenges to our 
world missions program in this present day. 

First, the population explosion throughout the world is 
a matter of serious concern. We in America still have room 
and resources. This is not true in other parts of the world. By 
the year 2000 the world's population will total six millions. 
This is a serious problem for our world mission program. It 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



49 



aggravates every kind of social problem from matters of hous- 
ing to that of prostitution. 

The population explosion is proceeding more rapidly than 
the rate of Christian conversion. 

The world is less Christian today than it was 25 years ago. 
We are not keeping up with the world's people. Therefore, 
the world is increasingly becoming more pagan. This rapid 
growth requires that we rethink our missions program and 
gird ourselves to meet it. 

Secondly, there is the challenge of the revival of the 
worlds religions. In the past it was thought that these reli- 
gions were dying, namely, Hinduism, Budhism, Islam, Shin- 
toism and others. 

This is not all bad. It is better to be religious than irre- 
ligious. But in part, their action is a reaction against the Chris- 
tian mission, and so they are saying, "Not your religion, but 
our religion." 

Islam is now sending professional missionaries into Africa. 
They are monotheists, and teach that Christians have three 
gods. They preach polygamy and appeal to the race prejudice 
of the Western world. Not Christianity, but Islam, they say, 
offers hope to the Eastern world. They have missionaries in 
our country and their ministry is telling in the Negro race. 

Budhism is undergoing a resurgence and is sending out 
missionaries. Increasingly, we are going to see missionaries 
from these other faiths as they preach, "What nations are 
most war-like in recent year? What nation dropped the atom 
bomb?" 

Hinduism is undergoing revival. Rama Krishna centers 
are being erected and are preaching the message of relativism, 
saying, "Let's not try to convert one another any more." 

It would be interesting to know how wide-spread is this 
doctrine even among ourselves. 

As for myself, I go to witness to one who has laid whole 
of me, who claims to have final authority, who is the truth, 
the way, and the life, and I have to be true to myself. This 
revival of missionary endeavour is a challenge. 



50 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



What is our attitude to the communists? So often it is 
that of hatred, or else, we limit our thinking about communists 
to the political sphere of life. My attitude is missionary. I am 
out to convert them. I would say to them "Your children will 
grow up under Christianity." 

Any Christianity that is helf-hearted, can't exist. If we 
aren't missionary we will have to get missionary, get committ- 
ed. 

Lastly, there is the challenge of human need. This is not 
new, but we know about it as never before. There is much 
apalling human need. In Calcutta children are homeless, grow- 
ing up on the streets. When darkness comes thousands make 
the streets their bed. 

If asked, "What is your hope in life?" Their answer is 
that their only hope is the negation of hope - rebirth. Maybe, 
sometime, the person would not be reborn into personal ex- 
istence, but reborn into the life of the world. 

You and I have the only true hope in Jesus Christ. 
Missions Report 

The 60 churches which compose the West Chowan Asso- 
ciation are Missionary Baptist Churches and as the name im- 
plies major emphasis is placed on Missions. 

The high-light of our Associational Mission Program this 
year was the School of Missions which was planned and pro- 
moted by our Promotional Secretary and sponsored and sup- 
ported by the churches. It was and continues to be a great 
blessing because of the information and inspiration which it 
furnished. 

State Missions continues to be a challenge as we realize 
that there are still a large per cent of the people in our state 
who are lost and without a Saviour. We have a good State 
Mission Program. It merits our support. 

The Home Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion is an important arm of our work. Missionaries working on 
home mission fields now number 2,192. This figure includes 
missionaries employed jointly by the board and state conven- 
tions, and shows an increase of 192 during the past six months.

The program of Foreign Missions is defined in the great 
commission. Missionaries must be sent into all the world bear- 
ing the gospel of redemption to all people. When the "Advance 
Program" in foreign missions was launched in 1948, there were 
625 missionaries under appointment for service in nineteen 
countries. In 1959 there were 144 new missionaries apointed, 
bringing the total to 1,381 serving in forty-four countries. It 
is the objective of the Foreign Mission Board to have 2,000 
missionaries under appointment by the close of 1964. 

For all the mission causes the churches in the West Cho- 
wan Association gave this year averaging $11.46 per capita per 
resident member. 

In these days of conflicts, hatreds, and misunderstand- 
ings, the love of Christ offers the only hope for world brother- 
hood and peace. May God bless and use each contribution 
given for Missions.

Brotherhood Report 

For the first time, our Brotherhood Organization has a 
full slate of officers. We have held several Brotherhood Ex- 
ecutive Planning meetings. Brotherhood work is being streng- 
thened, and the men of our churches are seeing the values of 
the work. 

There are four main emphases in the Brotherhood Pro- 
gram. These are: Royal Ambassadors, Christian Witnessing, 
Personal Stewardship, and World Missions. Each Brotherhood 



52 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



has a "Leader" in these activities, and the programs are cen- 
tered around these four areas. The work of the church is the 
work of the Brotherhood. Every church should have a Bro- 
therhood to promote the work of the church in reaching and 
training young people in evangelism and soul-winning, stew- 
ardship and service, and missions around the world. 

On September 20th we had our First Annual Brother- 
hood Meeting at the Ahoskie First Church, and our State 
Secretary, Clyde Davis explained the new organizational 
plan. Four Officers' Planning Meetings are scheduled for 
next year, and another Annual Associational Meeting, as well 
as other meetings such as Regional Conventions and Evange- 
listic Rallies. 

Plans are now being formulated to have our Associa- 
tional Royal Ambassador Camp for two weeks this summer, 
under the direction of the Brotherhood. Our Royal Ambas- 
sador Leader and his committee are working on plans for in- 
teresting and inspirational weeks for the boys in Christian 
Royal Ambassador Work. We urge each church to start a 
Brotherhood and at least one Royal Ambassador Chapter. We 
offer our assistance in any way possible.

49. W. E. Carter brought the following report and moved its 
acceptance. 

Report On Evangelism 

Evangelism is the heart of the great commission. With 
Christ's help, we are commanded to witness to the lost, bap- 
tize the converts, and teach them to witness for Him. Have 
we been faithful to our Lord and obedient to the great com- 
mission? An examination of the evangelism record will re- 
veal the answer. 

The sixty churches of the association reported 334 bap- 
tisms and 266 additions by letter in the past year. This makes 
a total of 600 additions. There were 553 losses by death, 
transfer of church membership, etc. The net increase was 47 
and average of % member per church. These statistics reveal 
the numerical increase, but only God knows the spiritual 
growth.

Three of our churches are to be commended for sur- 
passing the baptismal ratio of 1 to 18 as recommended by the 
Southern Baptist Convention for the past year. They are: 
Holly Springs with a baptismal ratio of 1 to 9.4, Wakelon with 
a baptismal ratio of 1 to 9.7, and Capeharts with a baptismal 
ratio of 1 to 16.9. "Well done, thou good and faithful servants." 

The suggested baptism goals, based on a ratio of 1 to 18, 
for the past year were as follows: Southern Baptist Conven- 
tion, 550,000; North Carolina Baptists, 47,762; West Chowan 
Baptists, 961. We fell far short of this goal. Instead of the 1: 18 
ratio, ours was a 1:52 ratio for baptisms. Instead of the 961 
baptism goal, we reported only 327 baptisms. This is 33% less 
baptisms reported than the year before. One out of every six 
or ten churches reported no baptisms during the past year. 

With a record such as this, it is evident that we need a 
great awakening and association. The suggested baptism ratio 
for this new year is 1:16 and a goal of 1070 baptisms. With 
God's help this goal can be reached and surpassed if all sixty 
churches of this association will begin an extensive program 
of perennial evangelism with soul-winning in the forefront of 
the total church program. It is our sincere desire that all 
churches cooperate with and participate in the West Chowan 
Baptist Associational Simultaneous Revival Crusade, Feb- 
ruary 19 through March 5, 1961.

Sunday School Report 

The Associational Sunday School work made outstand- 
ing advances this year in the area of training and teaching the 
officers and teachers of the Sunday Schools of our associa- 
tion. 

Group meetings were held for all age groups in our Sun- 
day School work from Cradle Roll thru the Extension Depart- 
ments. These meetings were held in the following churches: 
January 26, at Lewiston, St. Johns', and Seaboard, April 26,

at Riverside, Meherrin, and Ashleys Grove, July 26, at Au- 
lander, Harrellsville, and Woodland, October 18, at Green's 
Cross, Ahoskie First, and Galatia. 

Vacation Bible School Clinics were held at Cashie for Ber- 
tie County, Winton for Hertford, and Conway for Northamp- 
ton county. 

The Associational Superintendent also had conferences 
with his officers during the year to prepare for the group 
meetings. Let us give nothing less than our best in Sunday 
School work for our Master this year.

Training Union Report 

The Training Union program of the Association has mov- 
ed ahead again this year, thanks to the cooperation of the 
Training Union leaders in the local churches, the pastors, the 
Promotional Secretary and many others. New Training Unions 
have been organized, study courses held and established 
unions strengthened. 

Among the association wide emphases was the "Clinic for 
Officers and Committees" of the local churches. "M" Night 
was held at the Conway Church with the largest attendance 
in our history. Dr. John T. Wayland of Southeastern Seminary 
brought the message. The Training Unions of the association 
cooperated wholeheartedly with the Schools of Missions. The 
B.T.U. "Tournaments" were held at Menola in April with a 
good number of contestants from several of the churches. 
"Youth Night" at Union was attended by a larger number of 
Young People from all over the association than ever before. 
Rev. James Green of the Student Department of our State 
Convention brought an inspiring message. By action of the 
"Youth Night Assembly," plans were set in motion to have 
a fall Youth Night in addition to the annual spring meeting. 

As fine as the gains in this past year have been, there is 
still much to be acomplished. More of our Churches need to 
be led to organize Training Unions; more of our Training 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



55 



Unions need to encourage their members to prepare for, and 
enter, the Tournaments in the spring; more Unions need to 
plan for study and carry out those plans that the people might 
be better trained. We wait upon invitations to lend a helping 
hand, that our work might be even more helpful in the comng 
year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
John D. Davis 

52. Mrs. W. S. Timberlake brought the following report, 
read it and moved its adoption. 

Report On Church Music 

Music is a universal language and nowhere is it used in 
such various ways as in the services of our churches. This 
year our Association has a fine Music Committee which has 
worked hard to promote better music through our Associa- 
tion. 

In February, at Chowan College, the Music Festival spon- 
sored by the State Department of Church Music was held. 
Four churches, with a total of five choirs, participated. The 
music was of high quality. The judges were encouraging in 
their remarks on their grade sheets and challenged us to 
work harder in the years to come. We have found that very 
often the truths remembered longest are those which have 
been sung in hymns and anthems. 

The theme for the Hymn Sing at Center Grove was 
Youth In A Christ Centered Life. Six churches with an at- 
tendance of 55 filled the church with music. 

At the Evangelistic Clinic your Music Committee had pre- 
pared a Music Program suitable for a Revival Service, and 
used as it's theme "The Plan Of Salvation". Conway, Aulan- 
der, Ashley's Grove, Hebron, Buckhorn and Woodland were 
represented. 

Mrs. Edgar Whitlock was in charge of the Hymn Sing at 
the Rich Square Church in September. Men Of God was the 
theme of the afternoon. Sixty-two people representing eight 
churches were attentive and enthusiastic participants. 

The Church Music Department of our Association has 



56 



West Chowan Baptist Association 



had four Committee meetings for the year. It has met six 
of the eight required points on the Standard of Excellence, 
but there is much to be done. The Association cannot become 
Standard in the Music field until one fourth of the Churches 
reach the Standard. This means that we need fifteen with 
full Graded Choir Activities. At the beginning of this year 
we had only four. If you will call any member of the Com- 
mittee we will be happy to help you with organization of a

53. Mr. J. B. Daily brought his report from our Baptist 
Homes and introduced Mr. W. A. Poole, General Superinten- 
dent of the Baptist Homes for the Aging. 

Report From The Homes For The Aging 

For several years North Carolina Baptists have been in- 
terested in helping to care for the aging of our State. The 
Bible says thaf'God shall supply all your need according to 
His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." - Phil. 4: 19 

We know that we as children of God must help Him 
keep that promise Ten years ago the Baptists of North Caro- 
lina began a program of homes for the aging, and we now 
have three splendid homes: Resthaven, Reynolds Park, and Al- 
bemarle. We hope to begin construction on the Hamilton 
Home in the near future. God has blessed and led us in a wor- 
thy manner, and we shall soon be meeting more adequately 
the need of many who have already indicated that they want 
such a home. The home at Hamilton should claim our imme- 
diate attention and gifts to make this dream come true for 
those who have come to the sunset of life and need a haven. 
There are many who have a fuller and more abundant life. 
Let us pray and give that all these homes may render a finer 
service.

The February offering helps to provide for those who 
do not have enough to pay for their care. If North Carolina 
Baptists would average twenty-five cents per member, there 
would be enough to provide for the needs. 

We believe that you will pray and visit and give that 
many will receive the blessing of our homes for the aging. 

Respectfully submitted, 
J. B. Dailey 

54. Rowland Pruette, in the absence of the Childrens Homes 
representative, brought the following report and moved its 
adoption. 

Report From The Children's Homes 

The Baptist Children's Homes of North Carolina, Incor- 
porated, is a multiple service agency providing Christian love 
and nurture for more than 800 deserving boys and girls annu- 
ally. 

Income for the past three years has not been sufficient 
to meet minimum needs. Many children have been denied a 
Christian home whom we should have served. An increased 
Thanksgiving Offering is imperative this year. 

North Carolina Baptists have been caring for homeless 
and dependent children for 75 years. Appropriate observance 
of the 75th Anniversary will be made in November. During 
these years, more than 8,000 children have been afforded life's 
best opportunities. 

The need for such services increases with the develop- 
ment of industry, increase in population, growth of cities, and 
the mounting tensions which accrue to families in an urbaniz- 
ed society. 

John E. Roberts became Editor of Charity and Children, 
June 1, 1960. We invision, under his editorship, this paper 
making an increasing contribution to the total life of our Bap- 
tist people. 

North Carolina Baptists will continue to love and serve de- 
pendent children. No other object is so worthy of service and 
sacrifice. Many areas of unmet need confront us each day.

Your continued interest and increasing support will help

al Service He read the names of our beloved dead. Then, in 
memory of them, he read Ecclesiastes 12: 1-7 which was fol- 
lowed by a memorial prayer. 

56. The moderator asked the group to allow him to make the 
arrangements for the next annual session normally made by 
the Time and Place Committee. 

57. The report from the Resolutions Committee was pre- 
sented. 

Resolutions Committee Report 

"Bless the Lord, O my soul and forget not all his benefits." 
Psalm 103:2 

The Seventy-eighth Session of the West Chowan Baptist 
Association, meeting in the Conway Church and in the Rich 
Square Church, has been a memorable experience. 

Therefore, be it resolved: 

1. That we express our deepest appreciation to the mod- 
erator, W. T. Charles, to the Committee on the Order of 
Business, and to each speaker for the spiritual depth of the 
program with its mission emphasis and the efficient manner 
in which the sessions were conducted. 

2 That we express our gratitude to the host churches for 
their generous and abundant meals provided for the meetings. 
For the inspirational music and for the lovely floral arrange- 
ments enhancing the atmosphere of worship. 

3. That we continue with a foreign mission rally on the 
evening of the first session. 

4. That we individually and collectively dedicate ourselves 
anew to the task of world-missions by increased giving to the 
Cooperative Program, through prayer, and by personal wit- 
nessing. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Russell O. Cutchins, Chrm.

How The West Chowan Association Came To Be 

1. The Kehukee Association was organized November 9, 1769 (according to 
Paschall). Smdy Run (then called Bertie) was the only West Chowan church in 
the organization. 

2. In 1808, the Kehukee was divided at the Roanoke River, North of the River in 
North Carolina -ecame the Chowan Association. The following West Chowan churches 
were in the new organization: Ahoskie, Sandy Run, Bethlehem, Cashie, Meherrin, 
Ross (then called Ross' Meeting House), Colerain (then called Wiccacon). 

3. In 1883 the Chowan Association divided at the Chowan River and the three 
counties between the Chowan and Roanoke Rivers became the West Chowan Asso- 
ciation. Twenty-eight churches formed the Association. 

The Kehukee was probably the fourth Baptist Association in America. The 
Philadelphia formed in 1707 was first; the Charleston (S. C.) in 1751; the Sandy 
Creek (around Sanford) in 1758; and the Kehukee in 1769.
